Machine shop Los Angeles

Does anyone know of a good and hopefully affordable machine shop in Los Angeles that's familiar with M103 engines?

Thanks.

I have used Metric Motors Machine Shop (I hope that's how they spell it) in North Hollywood, off Burbank Bl. they're a Subaru specialty Machine shop run by Russians, they've done vintage American i6 head works and a OM603 for me, no hassles, fair prices and rapid turn around .

Why not give the name and address ? .

Good Machine Shops are a blessing and ever harder to find .

i did not put the info as my dad is old school. He rarely takes on new customers unless they are referred. I also did not want him to be bothered. He doesnt specialize in mercedes but he can do work on nearly anything. If someone needs work done they can message me. he is located on S LA Cienaga though.
