Anyone know of someone that would rebuild a 207 engine for a 1936 Master? I live just outside of Seattle. Thanks - Jim

Welcome to the Stovebolt wave

Find your local antique farm tractor club and see who they use in your area. There is usually some small shop that specializes in old low HP, low compression engines.

Ask the same question on the VCCA Chat Forum...

I have used Motorworks Inc. in Spokane, they did a really nice job rebuilding the head for my '37 216. If you can't find anything closer to Seattle, that would be an option.

Thanks. I called Buds and they're booked for the next couple of months. Does anyone know user Pre '68 Dave? He's posted some good information and appears to be located in WA. Was wondering if he might know someone? Unfortunately, I can't send him a message until I'm off of moderation.

I know Pre '68 Dave, and at this time I do not have a recommendation.

Did you contact any of the guys at VCCA?

How bad is your engine...does it run or is it stuck and rusty?

Thanks Dave - appreciate the reply. Mike - yes, I also posted on VCCA - unfortunately no leads yet. The engine ran, but apparently a lubrication issue caused the cam gear teeth to shear off. It's currently at a shop in Monroe, WA. They're willing to replace the parts, but have said the issue is likely to happen again because of poor oil flow. I'm trying to decide if I should have the 207 rebuilt or swap in a pressurized 235. Thanks again for the help.
