Iowa Machine Shops

Recommended Posts

Any good machine shops you would recommend?

I've taken multiple things to Nevada and don't plan on going there again.

Didnt Arnolds buy out Nevada? Your talking about what is or used to be Williams?  I had heard a while back things were not as good as when previous owners ran it. Havent had anything done in years so i really dont know but i think i may give the place i mentioned a try next time i do.

Former owner of Nevada shop now runs a small shop in I think Cambridge ,Iowa had a head for a 4240 Deere there this last summer but I didn't take it down but I do know he is running 1 there somewhere guess he did'nt like retirement.Otherwise I don't know of anybody that does the crack repair there are lots of good machine shops in Iowa but when it comes to welding I'll bet 90 percent of them send their stuff to Nevada

There is a place in Kansas City the stitches cracks. I'v had a few heads there. No problems ...but a long wait. Nevada ruined a head of mine a few years back.

I've heard the former Nevada owner had another shop somewhere but wasn't sure where.

Rex, the former owner of Midwest Cylinder Head is now doing some head welding and machine work out of Cambridge, Iowa. The name is Schell Welding and the phone number is (515) 383-4830.

Rex also has a website for another business he is running. 

http://bullgears.com/

You can find a phone number for Rex on this website. I have had better luck reaching Rex at this number.

Rex is a great guy and really knows his stuff...........and he stands behind his work.
