Need a Canadian engine rebuilder
#1
Hey folks, not sure if there are other Canadians on this site or not but I live in Alberta and need a reference for an engine rebuilder. I have been completely overwhelmed with the information on the 351 Cleveland and want the rebuild to offer something special.

Hmmm... Ft McMurray? Long way away. I am in Niagara Falls, Ontario. I had my original 429 cobra jet engine rebuilt by an old school engine builder here in Niagara-on-the Lake (just across from Buffalo, NY) three year's ago. He is getting up there in age and is really a GM guy, but took my engine on because of the rarity of the car... There are not many good old school engine builder's left here in Ontario... There must be a good re-builder out West, Calgary/Edmonton? I know there a couple West guy's on this site, so hopefully they will chime in here with some references for you. 

On a side note, my cousin works in the oil industry up there as a welder, for many year's now. He lives in Edmonton these day's...

Thanks for the comments. I see a lot of people commuting to Fort McMurray to work. Edmonton is the closest large centre and the majority of commuters come from there. There has been a huge drop in the economy up here in the last 8 years and people are starting to afford living in this community so I hope a lot of folks take up residency. I know there are a lot of engine rebuilders in Edmonton/Calgary I was just hoping to find someone that has a passion for the Cleveland.
