Try Owslebury Crankshafts, of Winnal Near Winchester.

They do a lot of this work.

Have you managed to get the machining work done ?
I specialise in Ford V8 building 260cu in (4.2) to 800cu in (13.3) mountain motors. Petrol, Alky, Nitromethane, N/A, Blown or Nitrous. The only thing I don't do is Crank Grinding, Cam Grinding, Cylinder Boring and Block Line Boring. I have a very good selection of machine shops within 15 miles of where I live so never needed to tool up for this work. Fully tooled including head work. Been building Ford V8s for 32 years.
Based by the Thames in Essex.
