    Default Need a Good Place to Get a Block Bored Out

    Anyone near the Chesapeake Bay/ Easton/ Baltimore area know of a good closed end block boring outfit? I need to get an old Merc triple bored out.

    Thanks,

    Jeff

    What are the accurate measurements for bore out of round and taper of your block?

    Depending on your budget and willing to ship the block there is a machine shop here in Orlando that does blind bore outboards and receives work from from local marinas and out of state. I have had my blind bore work done there with excellent results. Just tell him what final bore and hone dimension you want based on piston you will use. Owner Don has all the neat tools and has been doing machining , fabrication, welding, etc. , for 40+ years and is a excellent machinist and has good reviews.

    In Wisconsin there is Mike Wienandt's shop but you would also have to ship

    Contact x engine builder and racer Jerry Wienandt for info on who he recommends for blind bores, probably still have to ship the block

    There are others that can be added.

    Thanks. I'll keep him on the list. I'll ship a piston to whomever does the work so he/ she can fit it.

    Thanks!

    Found a local guy in Lothian, MD who sounds like he knows what he's doing.

    Thanks all!

    "------sounds like--------"? IMO mighty trusting. Has he done a lot of blind bores?
