I have a 1987 Mercury 175hp Black Max. I need to get the #4 hole bored and sleeved. Does anyone have any recommendations on a good machine shop?

Thanks

Had my 100hp merc done 4 years ago by a guy out by lavon. If i can find the paperwork, I will pass on the name. Did the pre-buy inspection on my "new" boat and found scored cylinders, just had him do the job. Fwiw, no problems and Lake Park Marine mechanic said they did a sweet job.
