Anyone know of a quality machine shop in the area that can polish a 4 cylinder crankshaft? I believe Ive found the root cause to low oil pressure in the merkur.

Thanks

Paul,
     There is a small machine shop on the corner of Hungary and Mountian Rd.  I have never used them but did call to get info about building the original 283 V8 in my 57 Chevy.  They were very knowledgable and seemed to genuinely care about what they were doing and their customers.  The guy spoke to me for probably 15 minutes and then said it would be more economical to just buy a 350 block and keep the 283 on the shelf.  It's called Laurel Automotive Parts and Machine....again I don't know their work and have never used them, but thought I would throw it out there.  They have been around for 20 years or so.  I am sure someone else has a better first hand suggestion.

Best,
Mike D

Thanks Mike.

Looks like they have crank polishing specified on their site.
