Andrew,

Try Automotive Machine & Supply at 212 Carroll St. They did the head on my Honda and are quick, professional, and have great prices. Good folks.

matt,

thanks so much for this tip. i will indeed consult them, as i expect that i will be unable to unwind that plug and i can't afford to replace the housing.

thanks,
andrew

You could also try Alexander's machine shop. They're a pretty big outfit and don't usually handle small, off-the-street work, but if you tell them Steve Krabill from Hammermills International sent you, they might just do it for free

I could call ahead and tell them I need a favor if you let me know when you're going over.

Update . . . I had to call down there today for another matter, so I brought up your little conundrum. He said no problem, he'd get you fixed right up.

Go to Alexander's Machine at 3700 N Commerce St, Fort Worth, TX 76106 and ask for Ronnie Alexander. He knows you're coming and will take care of you. The shop is massive and almost all of the projects they have going on right now are ours, so doing me a little favor for me is nothing.
