I'm having the same sort of issue with a machinist who really doesn't want to grind a crankshaft my way. That's one of the big reasons I went ahead and bought a grinder for my own shop. I did find an old geezer (2 years older than me) who agreed to grind a prototype shaft to my specifications for half what the other guy wanted. That will allow me to get a dyno test engine assembled while the equipment and power wiring is getting rearranged in my shop for several pieces of equipment that require 3 phase power. Once that's done, I will be able to modify crankshafts, cylinder heads, and blocks without relying on anyone else to "do it my way"! Frank Sinatra was not the only guy who ever believed in that principle!

some time ago there was a shop here in Spartanburg that specialized in repairing diesel engine heads but not sure if they are still in business. perhaps check some diesel shops in your area. I understand head repair like this was common...........back in the day, maybe still is??

I can explain it to you, but I can't understand it for you smile

It's usually reserved for big commercial engines that replacement parts tend to be extremely expensive- - - - -patching up an automobile block or head is usually prohibitively expensive unless the part is extremely scarce. The machine shop where I ran the connecting rod reconditioning department sort of specialized in commercial Diesels, and they sublet their crack repairs to a company called "Diesel Cast Welding". The technology exists, and has actually improved over the past few decades, but it comes at a price that will make your checkbook need CPR!
