Hi Jeremy and welcome. We can see that you clean cases very well, and one can assUme you bore for the new big cylinders that are popular today, but what method(s) do you use for align bore? Do you offer complete welding services when we really blow something up?

Interesting (and appropriate) questions, Craig.

I don't do Facebook, so I didn't check that link, but a search elsewhere indicates that he's in Spokane Washington. Apparently just incorporated as an LLC last September.

I would like to see what his experience level is with the 356/912 engines. How many engine cases has he actually completed. Machining and welding is really critical on these and some previous operators were much too anxious to do an align bore before it was really needed.

I spoke to him on the phone since he is here in the NW. Seems OK, but I have not used the service. Knows all the right buz words.
