Following the decision to fully restore my 1938 Buick Century, I was anxious to identify a specialist with the skills and knowledge to fully rebuild my straight eight engine. As luck had it, I visited Motorclassica last year and met Damian from M&W Engine Services based at Wendouree in Ballarat. As a result of that first meeting, I arranged to deliver the engine to the M&W workshop. On arrival, I was given a tour of the workshop and was impressed with the cleanliness and obvious attention to detail that was on display as I moved from area to area. The engine was dismantled, cleaned and an inspection report prepared.
I returned to M&W when the inspection report was complete. I was provided with a detailed quotation which I accepted as fair and reasonable. The engine has been completely restored, balanced and painted to original colour with decals sourced and fitted by Damian and his team. Although the engine has not been fitted to the car as yet, I am confident that it will be all I expected.
M&W has provided me with a folder detailing all aspects of the rebuild and advise in relation to the first procedure and running in. I will be sending another engine to the M&W team for restoration and do not hesitate in recommending this enterprise to others.
