    Looking to do a stock rebuild or some performance. We have experience with IH engines. Unfortunately we don't do our own machining. There used to be some good engine shops in KC. G&G is one that comes to mind. Not sure if they are around any more.

    Not really looking for serious performance, just a good overhaul and some upgrades, multi angle valve grind, heavy springs, balance, exhaust p&p.

    Going to restore our 78 scout in the spring but traveling for work is going to drag it out if I dont sub some of the things I usually do myself. It's difficult to let some one else monkey with a family jewel, but I have decided to be practicle and would prefer to have use of it back sooner, rather than spend a year without it.

    For your head work, you might try:
    Noland's Cylinder Head Service
    1519 Charlotte
    K.C., MO.
    816/471-5167
    You might ask Tom at Noland's where to go for the rest of the engine work.

    And then there is:
    Roadbuilder's Machinery and Supply
    1001 S. 7th
    KC.,KS.
    913/371-3822

    Hope this helps.

    I used a local I.H. engine builder. IHOnlyNorth, Jeff had a racing machine shop do the machine work. They did the light porting, and machined everything to spec and balanced to 1 gram. He order a rebuilt rocker assy. and put it all together. It was not cheap, but it cost to have good work done. There are a lot of little things with IH engine that you need to spend time making sure it's done right as they have a unique oiling system. Jeff had just switched machine shops and this was his first complete engine rebuild with that machine shop and he was very happy with there quality of work. You will want to use the Silvolite piston's. I would also recommend you run a quality oil like Swepco 306. You might want to even look on the this forum for ideas too. If you rebuilding the motor don't forgot to replace those motor mounts :)
