I somehow deleted the bookmark I had for it. I was going to get the rest of the work needed on my 440 done there, but I can't remember where or what the name of the place was.

Don't go to those guys. We took a 440 block there, wanting specific work to be done. They didn't do what we asked, and decided to do a few unnessacary(sp) things to the block and charge us for it. We ended up having to go to a second machine shop to get the original work done. The second shop we dealt with cut one of the blocks decks too short. So I would not recomend them either.

I would call Livernois. It would be closer to your house and if they can't do it they should be able to tell you who can.

What are you looking to have done ?

Call Chuck's Engine in Westland ( on Hix I believe) 734-727-1760. Ask for Ricky - He is quite a character, and been in that business since the mid 70's, the old man Chuck has been rebuilding engines since '59. Unless you are looking to have Mopar specific mods (ie: external oil feed lines, lifer bore sleeves, etc,) these folks can help you out.

Tell Ricky you get Brian from Sparta's discount.
