Does anyone know of a machine shop in New England area that can machine the block and re-Babbitt a 29 super six? And what the cost might be?

    "Super", you deserve your own "discussion" on that topic, why not start one with the title "Looking for Machine Shop in New England"? You may attract more responses that way, than you will by piggy-backing your inquiry onto a discussion called "Joe".

    I would advise you contact someone in the New England chapter of the Club, they should certainly be able to direct you to a capable machine shop.   Or, maybe one of the Club members in New England actually rebuilds Super Sixes.

    J & M Machine in Southboro, Ma. is excellent. They did my complete '29 Essex Engine 3 years ago. Outstanding quality of work.  (508)460-0733

    Yes  I did I plan to call you as soon as I get a chance. I did get through to the machine shop but still would like to talk with you. Just had a surgery and have been preoccupied with that. I appreciate your help with locating a machine shop.
