View Full Version : need a machine shop in MI that can o-ring

I've got everything ready on my shortblock but I can't find a place near me (SE Michigan) that can o-ring a 3.8 block. If I can't find anywhere local, I'll be driving it out to Westech in Spring Lake Wisconson. That's a 5 hour drive!
Anyone know a good machine shop around here they can hook me up with?

You may want to try A&A machine shop in Davison, MI on M15 and coldwater road. They did all the machining and such on my block. Not sure if they do o-ringing though. Number is:


Ask for Tim, tell him mark sent you......

If the shop Mark recommended doesn't work out call 517-263-6952 and ask for Jerry, the owner of "Cultice Race Engines" just outside of Adrian. He O-ringed my block when building the engine that's currently in my 95 SC. The guy does excellent work.

I wouldnt go to spring lake since westech is in silver lake. There has to be a place closer. But here you get a home cooked meal thrown in for free.
