VW machine work

Postby vwracerdave » Sun Jun 30, 2013 9:55 pm

Who does machine work in OKC. I have a case I need opened up for larger cylinders and clearance for a stroker crank. Who does machine work in OKC. Who will do it in a reasonable 3-5 day time period. Who does machine work in OKC. Anybody know a shop that does good work? I'm ready to throw in the towel and this is the main reason the VW hobby is dying around here. Who does VW machine work in OKC?

Who is Darrel?
Bethany is not interested in doing machine work any more. They suggested I send it to Rimco in CA.
Not sure about Larry
Buddy Rice can grind cranks but I'm not aware they do anything on cases.

Buddy Rice did crank grinding and head rebuilding for my last 1600 build. Crank was great. Heads had cracks from new valve guides. Ended up buying new mofoco heads.

I still don't know who Darrel is.

I talked to Ricky from the closed Sandsations. He is now a Vehicle Machanic at the Post Office. He still does some work on the side at his house and says he can machine a case for me. I'll let you guy know.

Let me know what you find out... I am about to start on my motor. Plan to split the case some time shortly.... This will be my first VW motor to build.. Any advice? On parts, brands (good or bad), what to do or what not to do, etc... I want to have a strong, powerful motor, that also will be a daily.

Get the How to Rebuild Your Air-cooled Volkswagen Engine by Tom Wilson. Its the red one from HP Books http://www.amazon.com/Rebuild-Volkswagen-air-Cooled-Engine-models/dp/0895862255/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1375782704&sr=8-1&keywords=how+to+rebuild+a+volkswagen+engine Read it before you get started, it has plenty of good tips for keeping everything in order. And a book mark you will know where you left off when your project has to pause for an indefinite period of time. If you want to shop local, Bethany Imports has the book but you'll pay a bit more.
