    Hello all, I'm looking for a good machine shop in the Tampa FL area that has a good reputation and knows what they are doing with our engines.

    I need the cylinders honed, crank checked and new pistons pressed on my stock 1G rods.

    You're in the wrong section.
    Go to the local tab at the top of page .
    This has been discussed there already and you can use that info to make a decision .

    I have tried the local section but I have not received any replies, also the discussions that I found on there about machine shops are not current and are many years old.

    i used to build engines in tampa. can I ask why you are installing new pistons on stock rods? because when a piston or piston ring fails it always ruins the cylinder wall. a hone of cylinder cannot correct .

    My cylinder walls have ring marks from being seized, I think. If you check out my profile I have pictures of the cylinder walls. I have a set of .020 pistons to go in on the rebuild.
