    Looking for a good machine shop to finish my 348 heads. I will have them stripped and clean. Need a shop to grind the valve seats and valves. I am north of Boston but can ship anywhere. Just looking for a good quality shop based on people’s experience. Thanks for the input.

    Sorry for the delay in getting back with some contact information. I had to search through the "mess" that I call my desk. Anyway, here is Lenny's contact info...

    Lenny Kingsly (sp)
    Kingsly Automotive
    603.889.3844
    Nashua, NH

    Just tell him that Tim Matson told you to give him a call and hopefully you can work out a plan to refinish your heads. Hope this helps.

    Another recommendation is :

    Manitowoc Motor Machine
    2308 Franklin St.
    Manitowoc, Wisconsin 54220
    800-666-9129

    Very good results for the past 4 years, soda blast heads, guide installs, comp. valve jobs, chamber repair. No flow work but their reconditioned heads are very nice. A little slow.

    Good luck,
    James Patterson

    James, thank you. Appears Norwood uses Manitowic Motor Machine and are quite pleased. Knowing the 1st rate work Norwood is known for this is a strong recommendation. Again, thank you. John.
