Well, this happened sooner than I figured it would. Going to need a machinist somewhere in the Southeast that can do quality bore/hone/balance. Going to need someone for valve jobs(Serdi), as well, but he block work is more important. I'm in South Florida and the one guy who knows what he is doing who I have been using for 20yrs is mentally done. Give me your recommendations, can ship anywhere in the SE. Need someone responsible that cares and is not a total asshole.

Thank you, I know Charley, good guy. He uses the same machinist I do... He may be in the same boat I am sooner or later.

Thank you, will give them a shot next week also. I sorta/kinda know [email protected] in TN when he used to be in SoFla years ago. He built a few motors for some personal friends who ran drag week and they ran hard. He is beyond slammed, from what they tell me. Keep the recommendations coming! Thanks to all!

I just had my engine done by Muscle Machining in Largo FL.
Was very impressed with his shop, clean, nice machines, capable of line boring new caps, others shops in my area were not.

I've used Horsepower By Hedrick in Jacksonville, they did a fabulous job on mine. He does mostly circle track stuff but he does have everything to do whatever you need, along with a dyno. Nice folks and very clean shop.

It’s been about 10 years since I lived in Miami but back then there was in Ft Lauderdale a guy named Harold Grady at Thunder racing. Did a lot of off shore stuff. Ron Crawford in Miami as well. Used to build some big power small Ford blower motors. Google them. I live in Ga now and yesterday found out my go to guy died after open heart surgery. I feel your pain. So hard to find someone that you can trust and work with. I feel totally lost.

Wow, those are old names I haven't heard in a while. I think Grady died, not totally sure. Ronny Crawford just does super high end builds, last I heard. Not even sure he is still in South Florida. I am thankful for the good leads everybody has sent me.

It’s a damn tragedy when someone with so much talent and knowledge dies. Real loss to the entire community. I remember back in like ‘98 Grady was the only guy around with fixtures for Ford mod motors.
Someone asked Crawford his thoughts on going fast with a big blower modular ford, he said “you can only kick a dog in its ass so hard”. Good times.
