Mike cannot do it at Philpot. Go to Mark Cummins in Princeton, IN. They are known for building sprint car engines, but they can do it.

Oakley may be able to do something with it too. He's right up the street from Mike Phillips.

Bishoff is good. There's also another local engine builder (in northern ky) by the name of Jim nave that could more than likely do it. He's built a lot of circle track small blocks screamers and offroad engines that I know of. I could get his contact info for you if it would be convenient.

Let your fingers do the walking and call around. A shop with a 2 1/4" arbour for their line hone could possibly do it.
However, it will be best to bore it to within a .001" of the finished size.

I send mine out to 2 different places ... one to bore it and one to finish hone it.
If there is NOT something special about that block, then get another.

EDIT:   I missed that it was a small block. The line hone arbour won't work as the holes are all different sizes. I thought this was for a big block.
Have them all bored to the same size and use the DART block cam bearings.
