I'm currently working on restoring a 1948 KBS-6. (I'll get some pictures in here once I get them uploaded to a hosting site.) The teardown is just about done... now it's time to find out what is good and what isn't. The truck is located on my parents' farm in western Iowa. Does anyone have suggestions as to machine shops in western/central Iowa or eastern Nebraska where I can take the engine block/crank/head to get magnafluxed and have any needed machining done? Thanks!

And this is why I never, ever, ever try to crank over a questionable engine "just to see if it is stuck"...

Here's Uncle Clarence's truck, arriving on the farm after spending almost 30 years out in the trees at a neighbor's farm. For most of its active life, it carried a Minneapolis-Moline 1210 sheller, which was removed when it was put out in the trees.
