Lucky you; they must have been cast at the same plant the moco has their cylinders done.

Keenan Tatro of Tatro Machine in San Diego posted some videos on his struggle with American Cycle Fab. He too was given excuse after excuse and promises that were complete BS. One of his YouTube subscribers took a ride over there to search for his 45" parts. Search being the operative word. The pics and description of the shop were not pretty. Tatro did get some parts back but it was unclear if they were even his or if the work he ordered was performed correctly. It didn't appear there was much of anything going on at that shop anymore.

Yeah I saw that on his youtube channel. I finally got my parts from them, but I will steer clear of them in the future after my own experience and the experience others have had with that group at ACF.

Little update here guys. I'm still slowly working on this thing. I think the finish line is within sight!!! This has been without a doubt the most involved mechanical project I've ever taken on. I love a challenge though. Here's where I'm at with it now.... Just got some cam shims and other goodies in the mail today.... SLOW & STEADY!
