Hi Bantam friends,

I hope you can help, my D14/4 needs a rebore.  Can anyone recommend any engineering companies in the Peterborough area that could do this job.

Thanks in advance.

Hello Mark, I thought all the ones in my area had disappeared years ago, most had, but using right wording on a Google or similar search found three that I'd not heard of before around Northampton.

Engine reconditioners is the wording that worked for me, just ring and make sure they bike barrels, some do only cars etc.

One I used eventually did three Bantam barrels for me.

Was a bit put out at the week and a half later than the promised time and the adding on of VAT, which I genuinely thought was inclusive,. I thought businesses had to quote inclusive.

I'm sure there are plenty about, it's precise, but lucrative work I believe.

Four now on the road and at least several in bits.

I have had bad experience with engine shops saying they can bore a 2 stroke cylinders.

Get recommendations of people who would know.

These days I use a guy in cheshire who I trust....not much help I know.
