Machinist in the Greater NYC Area

Hey everyone-

I'm currently at the initial stages of an overhaul. Have the engine out of the boat in disabled as per the MMI Overhaul Manual. Now I'm starting the journey of finding a reputable shop in the area to hot tank, magnaflux, measure, and do any required machine work. Problem is that there are tons of shops in the area (especially in LIC for all the cabs). Before I start dialing down the list, I was wondering if anyone had any recommendations.

-Kind Regards

Block cleaning and machining

I’m in the Twin Cites area..Minneapolis and St. Paul.
Picking my block, head and cam and crank Wednesday.
The caustic cleaned, magna-fluxed both.
Took of three broken studs and repaired.
Micro planned the head and block.
Balanced the crank and cam in placed.
Now where did I leave the oil pan?

The place I took it to does old Detroit iron and racing engines.
Even though they do big outboards, the small size of the pistons required them to take longer.

Next stop Moyer for parts.

Check the national hot rod association.

I had my head resurfaced many years ago at The Engine Factory in Long Island City. They definitely knew what they were doing (they guessed the A4 head was from a marine forklift based on its design and alloy), and are still in business.
