Anyone know of a good Corvair knowledgeable machine shop in the Atlanta or North Georgia area which can handle a crank regrind and valve guide replacement ?

Search up Racing Systems Inc. in Dahlonega. Kent Ford is Corvair knowledgeable and does fine work.

If you are putting in new valve guides, it makes economic sense to put in the deep valve seats.

Racing Systems, Inc.

Dahlonega, GA 30533-3259

Phone: (706) 864-7763

Only 50 miles from my home! I wanted to ask about the extent of their Corvair capabilities... particularly with cylinder heads. Could they handle 140 hp deep valve seats, for example?

I would think so you would have to ask him. He has been involved in custom porting and racing head work for a long time. He is able to dress head gasket seats as well.

Good suggestion. I'll check on that.
