Go to the AOMCA site, you don't have to be a member, but you do have to sign in as a guest, ask a member there and I would bet they can direct you to a competent shop.

I was surprised that several automotive shops turned me down. Most say they don’t have the right machine. I’ll figure this out if I have to do it myself on the Bridgeport. Not my choice but possible. I did not have much time to call around today. It, will ask some of the motorcycle shops and find someone.

That’s pretty sad that an automotive machine shop is not competent enough to bore a blind hole, I wouldn’t trust them to do any work. I take outboards to an auto machine shop here in East Tennessee and they don’t even blink.

I appreciate the input. I have a few automotive shops around but none that I have called will touch a blind hole bore with ports (interrupted cut). The motorcycle shop idea may be the ticket. Lots of 2 cycle motorcycles still around with similar cylinders to an outboard. I did not think about that. I appreciate the tip. I’ll start calling around tomorrow. Thanks again.

I'm sure one of our Alabama members has a recommendation. But if not here in Atlanta I have used Wills Machine Shop for car engine cylinder boring and a few other things. Been open since the 40's probably seen a boat motor or two.

You might try checking with your local street bike shops that specialize in Harleys. My understanding is that the "ticket" is a Quickway Boring machine. My long time boat racing buds Jack and Jeff Kugler at Great Lakes Boat Company in Hamilton, IL were amazing engine builders and may still be doing that kind of work.

Slow but steady progress on my Rocket but, I’ve ran into a snag with my motor repair. The 35 is not holding me up as I have other options but, I would like to finish the 35 as a winter project. After going a little deeper in the 35, I found some scratches on the pistons that I was not comfortable with so I decided to do a complete rebuild. Mr. Poole was able to locate a couple of .020 over pistons for me but, the machine shop I have used is no longer an option. I have bored on a milling machine but, I would rather find a shop that has the correct machine to ensure a true bore and correct finish. I live in North Alabama. Anyone have any suggestions for a good machine shop?

Thanks for all of the suggestions. I will keep Poole Marine in mind as well. Thanks again

Currently tuneup and reseal parts. Nothing too difficult at this point. Hopefully I will not find any big issues.

I agree, great guy. I bought parts from his mom and dad in the '60's.
