I got to send my crank away to get cut, my rod journals are just a tad under specs so I ordered new .10 undersized rods and need to send my crank out. 

 

Looking for a reputable machine shop. 

 

Engine is an onan 16 hp BF-MS

I have a great engine shop that a good friend of mine owns. He does everything thing from antique engines to 1,000+ race engines for guys all over the Country.

I can get them done for around $50.00-$60.00 for the rod journals only. $110.00 for rods and mains. If you want to send it to him or me, let me know. I hope this helps.

Does he do cylinder boring ? Got to rebuild my uncle's engine soon. He thinks he found a deck for it in La Grange.

One of the local car dealers has a machine shop that I will be taking a kohler K301 to get bore and Haven't got it tore down to know whether the rod journal needs turned yet.

Great I will get my gear off the crank and should have it ready in a few days. I don't have the correct puller for this so I am not going to attempt it. I think the guy at the engine shop has the correct tool so as soon as its all cleaned up and I get a chance I will bring it to him.....I'll PM you when I am ready to ship it out.

 

I'll have some picts later, my wife has the phone right now. 

 

  Thank

I agree, shipping it across the country is hardly going to be cost effective.....You say your engine guy?...I am sure he would know someone. Or, ask at the local NAPA or other parts store.

Yeah the engine guy is the one that told me to find a better source. We have one machine shop local to me and I was told not to go there. If it cost me a little in shipping to have it done right then to me its cost effective.

Where ever you go with the crank, send the rod along so they can set the clearance to it!
