    Good luck!! Hard to find a real machinist at all these days. Just warm bodies standing in front of equipment and pushing a button now and then. I paid to have a local guy build a thick steel plate to hold down a 4tec block so he could bore them with an old school boring bar. I couldn't find anybody within 100 miles of me to sleeve a Yamaha MR1. Finally found a guy local that used shop equipment on his off time and did it. He said piece of cake, just basic machining operations.

    the problem is it’s not worth a shops time to do it. It’s small peanuts and mostly costs them money.

    how ever if you can find a machine shop that specializes in motor rebuilds they will more likely be to do it and at a reasonable price.

    Did you call the linked company?

    You may find that despite the shipping back and forth, that for a bulk shipment of engines it is worth the hassle. Ship a stack of cores out, get working engines back.

    The current US-Canadian dollar exchange rate will work in your favor.

    Which is why I suggested a telephone call, where one can ask them directly about the 4-stroke engines needing rebuild, and whether they can provide the rebuild services needed.

    If not, they may be able to direct the caller towards a company that can.

    I know its not GA. But I have used dura built engines in clover sc. And also I have used durhams auto machine in six mile Sc. Durhams is not cheap and not very fast but everything he has done for me has been good. Durabuilt is a drive for me but has been worth it. I have had him bore out a couple mr1 motors and a ton of seadoo 2 stroke stuff.
