after being on my first outing my 1963 has a broken engine bearing and I have decided at this point to do a full engine remanufacture.
Do you have any experience or recommendations for Remanufacturers?
So far I have been in contact with Jasper's.
I am in Charlotte, NC.
I had a customer come from Tennessee and pick up a rear end from me this week and we got to talking and he said he had had his engine rebuilt by Jasper a few years and a few thousand miles ago. My ears popped up since I had just read some negative stuff here about them and asked my customer how it went and he said "The car is running fine, not leaking or any issues." I told him well I guess you cannot ask for more than that.
This is one sample out of probably hundreds of engines they have rebuilt. It does not confirm they are good or bad overall ... but just thought I would share. I think they have picked up engines from me in the past when I might have 4 to 6 laying around, but that has been some time back. I had no issue with then and remember they paid a fair price for the engines. Just thought I would pass this along. If I considered them as a source for a rebuilt engines I would want to get many references, and some recent references with our 390's and 429's.
Daniela, If no one has a suggestion or reference you might try contacting EGGE Auto Parts. They are a known source for quality engine rebuild parts and think they would be a prominent supplier for quality rebuilders. You might ask them for recommendations. Parts would likely be sourced from them so that would be a win-win for both of you.
Also since you are in Charlotte area, home to NASCAR and engine rebuilders, maybe Travis from the Carolina Region can provide some reference. I have no one I would recommend in the Raleigh, NC area, not to mention it is 2.5 hrs away from you.
Daniela, my son had an engine rebuilt by Beal Racing Engines in Thomasville, NC. Even though they specialize in racing engines, they do work on most anything. My son had a Pontiac 455 engine rebuilt, and some enhancements to it for more hp, but nothing radical. They can probably rebuild/repair any engine. Their website is https://www.bealracingengines.com/ It might be worth a call to them to see what they can do for your engine.
