    Rover V8 crankshaft machining?

    I have a motor with one of the late 4 litre large journal cranks here; I also have a set of small journal "H" beam Carillo style rods and pistons that need to go into this motor. So, I need to get the big end journals machined down by about .185" to the 2" diameter small journal size to work with my rods.

    I am struggling to find anyone to do this work, have had one done before (along with a re-stroke) by John Eales some time ago, would like to avoid a traipse from Kent up to the midlands if at all possible.

    Thanks in advance for any suggestions.

    Farndon engineering,but they are in Coventry !
    Basset down in Hungerford,he did a fair bit of work on my rover,and with a phone call,he could point you in the right direction !
    P.S. I'm in Kent,and I couldn't find anyone local

    if it's just a regrind (albeit a big one) and not altering the stroke, any engine machine shop should be able to do it. they may charge more but then there's a lot more to grind off.
    need a job done on your project? i may be able to help.

    Thanks to all for the replies. Have used Thurstons for lots of stuff in the past, but they knocked me back on this job.

    Still waiting for Farndon to get back to me on another (big) crank machining job I asked them to price up more than two weeks ago

    Anyway, have just found someone in the Leicester area to do this crank, so will take it up there later this week.

    Thanks again.
