how much does it cost to bore cylinders

I need to get both done on my Deere. I'm not sure where to send them either. Anyone know?

Any automotive machine shop can do it. Here it costs $60 each.

Not all automotive machine shops can bore that small. I know that we don't have any boring bars that small because the demand is too small to invest in the tooling. Check with your local motorcycle shop or even the aftermarker Harley shops. They'll be able to send you in the right direction to get your cylinders taken care of. Just make sure to verify the clearances before you install them. More times than not they will be wrong.....

Be sure you provide the new pistons when you have the boring job done, so they can set up proper clearance! Don't just give them a spec!!

I charged $40 per cylinder- and guarantee a perfect job. Proper clearance, chamfered ports (relieved where needed), bead blasted gasket surfaces, cleaned and ready for installation.

I'm very surprised. I have 4 machine shops around me and they all do small engines.

Kwik-Way is the boring bar, right? What do you use for honing?

boring is cheap- but do they need to be plated?

Going rate is about 40 a hole. As stated in one response,
person doing boring should have new pistons in hand to verify
diameter and clearance. Big question no one asked yet- do they need to be plated? Nikasil will run about 150 a hole.
Several shops do a reputable job plating, I have used
US Chrome in Fond du Lac Wisconsin. They are located in the
Mercury Marine industrial park, and do plating for them.
Good credentials.

Also- if going way overbore, ports may need to be worked over.

I have all Sunnen hones, all cylinders are honed vertically under a continous stream of oil.

I work for myself- all I do is powersports engine overhaul. I do cylinder boring, sleeving and crankshaft repair for most all the bike shops in the Flint area.

How did your dad come to do the plumbing on it? I assume you are talking about the water brake and maybe some cooling lines. Just curious.

I'm impressed....that's some good equipment!! Nothin' makes an engine run better, than a round cylinder!! I used to use that same equipment on my kart engines. Do you use any jigs/tools/fixtures to ensure the bore is truly square to the crank? That will also help make HP's!! I'll keep you in mind when the time comes, since you aren't that awefully far from me!!
