Default Nor Cal Crank Grinder??

Is there any one in the Sacramento area that can grind a model B crank? Other nor cal shops?

Ask Turlock Machine Shop were they have their crankshafts done.
They are a Model A motor rebuild shop. Joe Silvils 209 495-1689.

Either Motor Warehouse in Sacramento, they usually just deal wholesale and not to the general public though.
Or my favorite is Bailey Bros. In American Canyon. They can really turn a crank. Not
The cheapest but very good and understand the ins and outs of older crankshafts.
I have them grind and straighten all the Model A and B cranks that I weld counter weights
onto.
They have also done a lot of work for Stan Vermeil over the years.

Be advised that some B cranks have counter weights that over-lap the journal. They must be removed before grinding. When you call shops, you should be able to tell them what you have.
