Getting things machined in the westcountry

Recommended Posts

Hi all.

I need my heads done, and crank reground, and indeed 2 conrods done too. Where's reliable, not too expensive, and experienced? Around the taunton area, or between here and Cornwall.

Also, is there a cheap way of acquiring a serp timing cover?



What needs doing to the rods??

the big ends need re-machining on 2 of them, where the bearing shell of one has failed, and bits of it have buggered the rod next door as well. Is there a cheap way of getting 2 new(ish) ones? I believe that it's a case of taking a little off the flats , then re-boring the hole to re-do them. About £25 each I seem to remember.
