Need a sleeve in 2.4 Bp

Hi, I need a sleeve put in a bridgeport, a local engineering co. wants 450 euro to do one sleeve (and I supply the sleeve) so it's going elsewhere!
Any names or numbers for reputable guys in the uk to do this, I have the sleeve just need someone to do it at a half decent price or at least not daylight robbery!
And any idea what it usually cost for a bore job and drop in a sleeve over there?

Thanks, Alan

Hi Alan !

It's been a while since we talked on S&F...
Recognized your boat in the signature. Hope you're OK.

I can give you 2 addresses just across the North Sea -> in Belgium
Contact info is on their websites. Someone told me Van Akelyen makes his own sleeves for Mercs. Prices I don't know. Both should be OK though...

Nico Van Acekeleyn : www.van-akelyen.com (brand new site! check out the chapter 'custom built')
Nico Bertels : www.bernico.be

Good luck with that 2.4 bp !
Greets, Toffy
