Default Looking for a good shop in GA (Metro Atl)

I'm looking for a machine shop in the metro area, I need to have the block flushed and cleaned. Cylinders honed a little bit, had to replace a rod bearing. So before I put it all back together I wanna get it cleaned up.

Ewing Machine in Snellville. From the sounds of it, you just need to drop the engine off (still fully assembled I hope) and let them determine what needs to be done.

I needed a regrind on the crank but it was cheaper to get a new stock one at o rileys.. Now I need a full assembly balance. And maybe a block flush..probably.

Yep. They do all my machine work now. They have a torque plate and everything else required to do aluminum engines, something a LOT of other machine shops in the area don't have.

The Ewings are good people too. They've been in the area for 30 years, and have a great reputation.
