I dropped my block, crank and head off with a machine shop. I called him last week and he hasn't put together a final price. I just want to make sure that I'm not going to get ripped off. What are fair prices for machine work? I am really looking for people who built the engine themselves or machinist to answer. Please don't answer if you never had these done or have done these services yourself. Block: Hot Tank Align bore/hone the mains Bored/Hone Cylinder to 86mm (0.040" over) Deck (Possibly: Hot Tank a 2nd time) (possibly:Install or re-install freeze plugs.) Final cleaning Crank: Clean Crankshaft Turn/Polish Main/Rod Journals Final cleaning Head: Hot Tank/Clean head Clean Valves Square/Resurface Head Reface valves Lap Valves Final Cleaning. Also all the machine shops around here a filthy (including the one I took my parts too), is this common thing?
