    Motor Freshen Up

    Hey guys its that time of the year, time to freshen motor up. I will be doing some calling/shopping around more this year being I have a bit more time then normal to get it done.

    What do you guys pay/think is a fair price for the following.


    DISSASSEMBLE AND CLEAN
    DO A VALVE JOB
    HONE BLOCK
    INSTALL NEW BEARINGS, RINGS ALL GASKETS, TIMING SET,
    LIFTERS
    SPRINGS
    REASSEMBLE AND DYNO TEST

    Just a thought..if your compression check is good why go thru all the above.

    If i were you i would change out springs/retainers/keepers, check the valves themselves.change out lifters
    drop pan and take a peek at your bearings.if they look good then roll with it...

    Do it yourself free labor
    all for say $600.00 or under ?

    this is only my opinion David..9x's out of 10 if something goes wrong its in the above stuff i mentioned anyway

    i would try it anyway..you can always go back and spend money anytime you like.. 8)

    Brian thanks for the input I always take everything in and ponder what I need to do. I do the freshen up thing yearly now because i dont want to chance the high $$ motor, guess its cheap insurance. I have 250 + passes on the motor this year, some with nitrous. paranoid I suppose

    well you'd think they would huh :wink:

    I wouldnt even be shopping around but they are more then busy at the moment. May still take it to them and wait but just want to shop around a bit, never know untill I look I suppose. I gave up on doing my own when I went to big blocks a few years ago before that we always did them. Figured this HP and pricey stuff be a good idea to start letting someone else do them for me.
