Thinking of having my 4-134 hurricane freshened up... anyone reccomend a good machine shop? I know the a complete MK KIt runs $500-750 but I do not have access to some of the shop tools I used too... so I am going to have to hand it off to a pro...

I had the old man there build my 350. It was a mild build with an RV cam and ARP rod bolts (included in the price). It already had aluminum roller rockers so he reused them. I also had them take out the annoying timing gear that the previous owner installed. Oh and the heads were cracked so he included replacements in the price which actually had bigger int/exh ports from factory. I supplied the intake and valve covers. I love this engine. I believe he gave me a 12 month warranty on the motor. I've had it for maybe 5-6 years and it's still runing strong in it's second vehicle. Before i parted out the K10 i was able to easily smoke my two rear 38.5x14.50r15 TSLs. Even in that heavy truck there was never a time when i thought... "i wish i had more power".

Here she is fresh from the shop before going into the K10...

If you need a hand with your jeep give me a call. Luckily I have the ability and the shop to do a lot of fabrication. It saved alot of $$ building my '73 CJ5.

Sorry for late reply, I just saw your message today. So what kind of help do you need on your '81 Jeep?

Let me know,
Russ
