Folks,

I would appreciate the leads for competent machine shops that do engine rebuilding in-house (my N14 needs new cylinder sleeves).
I've tried a few shops that advertise with our Club (e.g.: VAC, near Phily), and after a year+ of being jerked around, got absolutely nowhere with them. Kindly don't mention their name to me, even if they sponsor your race car.

If you've had a good first-hand experience with an engine machinist within ~300 mile radius of NNJ, please do share.


TIA,
a

It might be worth calling Don Fields @ Mr. M Car -- http://mrmcar.com . When my son's M Coupe's S54 engine had a spun rod bearing, Don sent the crankshaft out to someone for evaluation. So I imagine that even if he doesn't do rebuilds, that he would send the engine to someone, or refer you to someone.

Highly recommend Michael Yaskin, Bavarian Specialties in King of Prussia, PA. Best BMW shop in the region.

Thanks, Matthew, Mr M-car only works on "BMW products", and Mini engines do not qualify.

Thanks, I just got off the call with Mike, and long story short, he recommended looking for used engines first, if I can find one.
Might drive mine over to Mike to look at anyway.

Yaskin is great at Bavarian Specialties. Solid choice.

Also highly recommend Tyler Pappas at Tyspeed in Jackson, NJ. He does great engine work and does work on MINI.

Good luck!

I had a 351 rebuilt years ago by Kevin Gamble motor parts. It looks like he is still operating on Lincoln Blvd in Middlesex. He did all the machining, and a buddy used him to build racing engines.
