Local Engine Shop?

Anyone know of a local auto machine shop that does full rebuild work for the old AMC engines? I'm coming to the conclusion that this 401 was a rebuild candidate from the time I bought it and the fact that I got it running at all for a little while is a miracle. I'm low on free time already, so if I want this thing running by the end of the Mayan calendar it's time to look for someone that can rebuild it. I'm north of Worcester.

Any ideas as to the cost of such a service would be welcome as well.

Golens in Hudson NH. Chad is the owner and a great guy.
PM me for contact info.

Never argue with a fool, for they may be doing the same.

Thanks Wheezy. In the time between I ripped her apart and used my old 304 heads that were just serviced before the 304 block cracked a few years ago (I blame bad antifreeze mix and a cold winter). I realize I've crippled the beast with the smaller valves, but she runs much better, no smoke! So, I'll get the 401 heads done and make that next summer's project. I'll definitely give Golens a call if I need service.
