    I am looking for a machine shop that could bore out cylinders and possibly do some head work for me in the midwest. Fargo-Minneapolis area would be ideal, but I certainly would rather pay for shipping and get a quality product in the end. There are no local shops that I trust.

    Is it customary to also ship the pistons with the jugs when they are being sized?

    Any suggestions?

    Just send the pistons and cylinder / jug to Jim Comstock would be my suggestion.

    Comnoz on Access Norton.... only does Norton as far as I know.

    I am sure someone will post if there is a 'reliable source in your locality.

    Pistons need to go with the jugs for a rebore as the new pistons will have instructions for the final bore to hone clearances.

    Also Leo Goff in Memphis. (This is mid-west to me. )

    I just had a Kohler single bored locally and the machinist asked for the rings too. I thought that was great. Fit was perfect.

    I emailed Jim, he isn't too far and it certainly looks like he knows what he is doing and has a great deal of experience. Hopefully he is not too back logged.

    "I emailed Jim, he isn't too far and it certainly looks like he knows what he is doing and has a great deal of experience."

    Perhaps the greatest understatement I have read in many years. :)
