We wish to give you your best value on your repairs. Only shopping for price can be a big mistake. Many times a customer has gone elsewhere because of a difference of $25 or so. The customer many times has no idea where his new sleeve came from or how it was installed. If you have questions, please give me a call. Check out “How it’s Done” & you will learn.
This is an example of the replies which we get from some customers back east. Glen’s small Yamaha bore was machined Round & straight. Round &
straight is the base starting point for a good running engine.

Along with your service
No matter if you’re a newbie or a seasoned mechanic; you have skills which can be shared in a good conversation. It’s many times necessary to talk over a project with the customer; what is required & what can we do, also how we do the job. There are no secrets here & we wish that the customer completely understands the project from beginning to completion. The liner replacement business is a unique operation but nothing special. All of the skills & procedures required are those of a standard machinist. I’d like everyone to know how all of this is done in order to help sustain the trade.
I’m in my 60’s and retired. I wish to pass along as much information as I can to the next generation. My Life time profession has been Precision Machine work & Welding. In the early days, Small Engine cylinder repair. Over the years I’ve found that employees, customers and students have been very responsive to the teachings of a senior fellow in the profession. Did you buy a used Lathe or Milling machine? I’d be happy to help you set it up. Maybe a boring bar or an older Sunnen hone. The older manual machines are just as handy and useful as they have ever been.
You might even figure out that you can earn some extra income from your efforts. I’ll bet that you have friends who would pay you for your skills and services. In today’s economy a few extra Bucko’s could help fill your wallet. I started boring cycle cylinders for local dealers at $4.00 per hole. Years later and a lot of hard work has been very satisfying to me. In spite of all the Hype of plated cylinders and the Like, the sleeve business is alive and well. Just take a look at my Links page.
