I have a virgin T/A oncenter block along with a set of crower rods and a BMS 3.625 crank that I want to send out. I called Bobby at RPE who did my last motor - he said he's not doing any more Buicks. who should use? I'm in New York
I have had head and intake porting completed by Chris Hogeland and i was very very pleased with his work. I wouldn`t hesitate sending anything buick to him as prides himself in his workmanship. He`s in Alabama so not too far from NY compared to Kenny.
Don’t agree, if people are cheap they don’t need a Buick. Not many left to work on them,not many left. As now they have become a cult following. Mine has been under the knife for 18 months and 30k later. Its ready now for a little while while the TA motor is being built. If one is inpatient and cheap go get a musturd.
I can now actually answer this post from personal experience...
Duttweiler is machining an On center block for me that I just bought from him with the intention of selling. He said on most TA blocks it took anywhere from $400-$500 or more to completely prep and deburr the block so that it would be ready to run.
For anyone looking, this On center is for sale,too and already has all the finish machine work done to it
