So I've yanked my motor in the hopes of getting the bottom end rebuilt before the season really kicks off.

My problem is finding a machine shop who knows what a jet boat motor needs.  I know I've read the piston to cylinder wall clearance is larger, as are all the bearing clearances? But how much larger? Would most machine shops know this? I basically need to take the short block in, have someone tell me if my crank and rods are reusable, CC the heads, and tell me what domed pistons I need to end up at a fair pump gas compression ratio. Then have the machine work done, they or I can handle assembly, then have it all balanced.

Who are you guys using for this?

Might be tough at this time to get a quick turn around but I would recommend Bostick as well.
