Hello...

I received the news from a local machinist that the 250 I wanted to rebuilt was previously bored .060 and the crank was ground as well. It's pretty worn out. He tells me he can go ahead with the process, but he can't guarantee it won't "smoke a little and use some oil" from blow by past the new rings.

In researching options, I found this site:
https://www.powertrainproducts.net/CHEVY-250-75-79-COMP-ENGINE-p/845.htm

$2,000 for a rebuilt 250 with a warranty and shipping (from MD to TX) included sounds pretty good. It was about the same as what the machinist was to charge.

Is anyone familiar with these guys? I've never purchased a rebuilt motor online. What are some questions I should ask?

Can anyone please offer advice or your opinion? Is there anything special I should watch out for?

Thanks,
wishbone
