Engine machining estimates.

I have an amc 360 that is kind of tired. Runs good but is tired. I want to raise the compression from 8:5 to 9:5 and install the cam I got in it now that might have 2,000 miles on it and Offenhauser dual port intake and Truck avenger carb back on it. How much does it cost to redo the crank maybe punch out the piston 0.30 over and shave the heads a bit in case they were warping. I don't know to much about this but a friend was going to help me reasemble the motor. I was told that by shaving a little of the block that it would raise my compression to 9:5 and everything else would be good to clean up. How much has it cost you all in the past and what machine shop did you use. I live here in Killeen so something in the area would be better.

Well you are gonna have to buy new pistons and rings....prices vary depending on what you wanna do with it. I think to do a crank you are looking at $100 bucks and boring is $15-20 bucks a hole. Then add hot tanking to clean. Milling the heads will up your compression. Call your local machine shops and ask around. Talk around to some local yocals and see who they recommend.

When I had mine done for a 350, it was $100 for the crank, and $100 for the block to bore it .040 over and then like $30 or so for the hot tank. They also decked the block a little bit too. It should be around $250-$300 depending on the shop. Also remember to take all the little plugs an bolts out of the block so that the machine shop doesn't lose them or forget to give them back. I used a shop out of giddings tx, K&K I think.

I wouldn't bore it anymore than you have to. Just clean everything up. But otherwise, what mudskipper said.

So for the machining and all that I should expect to spend about $400-$500 and then pistons and gaskets about another $100-$200?

I dunno about the amc motors, but on a chevy by the time you buy all the new parts, gasket set, machining costs, and all the nickel and dime crap, your pretty much at the cost of a new crate motor. Yet, I always seem to think I can get it all done and repaired cheaper by fixing an old motor. By the time I add up ALL my receipts I have still yet to take my own advice..lol
