Richmond Virginia TD Thread

I know I've spoken to a few of you on here, but hi to all the other Virginia TD folks. I figured we needed some correspondence between the central VA TD community, so here it is. Questions, ideas, help needed, whatever, we can post here and try to help each other out. Or just talk about our TDs and such. I'll start by posting some info on stuff in the area.

Pull and Pay Junkyards:
Chesterfield Auto Parts (CAP) in Midlothian, Circle Auto Recycling (CAR) in Petersburg

Machine Shops:
Ballos Precision Machinery in Richmond, Crown machine on Rt. 360 in Aylett as suggested by Goose machine shop thread

Just made a visit to Chesterfield Auto Parts and Circle Auto Recycling.

As of Saturday November 26th,

CAP had:
2 91+ Daytonas, 1 V6 and 1 2.5 N/A, both automatic.
1 Shadow ES with pumper wheels & center caps, already got those
3 LeBaron convertibles, all V6 auto
1 87-ish Lancer turbo, auto

CAR had:
86 Laser Turbo
2 or 3 LeBaron convertibles, V6 auto
3 Daytonas, 1 was '90 base model 2.5 5-speed, other 2 were ES models, V6 and 2.5 N/A

I seem to recall there being 1 or 2 K-variants with 2.2 T1s, but I didn't pay much attention to them. New Yorkers maybe?

Just up the road from Floyd...about 15 mile north of Hillsville, near a small bump in the road named Austinville.

Nice to meet a local in here!

machine shop?

Hey, I'm in the Richmond area and getting ready to re-do a 2.5 turbo engine. Could anyone recommend a competent machine shop to do the block, rods, head, etc? Thanks.

PM Glenn Smith. He lives in the virginia beach area.

As for the free glhs, the offer is not good for anyone located in the Va. Beach area. ;)

Hey Wallace. I recommend Ballos Precision Machinery. I've seen the results of their work and it isn't bad at all. My boss sent a 2.5 Ford Ranger engine there and they did just about everything to prep it for a rebuild. Price wasn't bad. They're located off Hilliard Rd in the Staples Mill area. PM me if you want more info.
