Need engine rebuilder

None of the local engine shops do engine work (just doesn't make sense to me) so can anyone recomend a shop in or near Red Deer or Calgary that can rebuild a head for me.

for the price of rebuilding why don't you check with napa or bumper to bumper(or other am parts dealer)for some reman head assemblys most of the time they are the same or cheaper than rebuilding your old ones.


a moments silence for the shelbyx,i hope her new owner enjoys as much.

Well Napa doesn't have anything for me. Gave them my casting # and evrything and they can't get it. I'm just gonna bring the thing up to the place in Rocky Mountain House that rebuilt the other one. Long drive just to get a damn cylinder head!!!

Just got a call from Allied (Napa can't get it) and my cylinder head was damaged durring shipping!!!! So now they are trying a different place (waiting for the call back with the price) This is starting to get a little frustrating.
