Not any longerFAQS

Do you work on cars at Acme Speed Shop? 

No, only engine and engine components.

 

Do you offer machine work on MG, and Triumph engines, for the person wanting to do the assembly themselves?

No, we are just too busy to do this type of work anymore. if you are local, we can refer you to good machine shop in the area, assist you with precision measuring, and supply you with parts 

 

Do you still build SU carburetors? 

Yes, but only modified, or race prepped.

 

When I email you a question about my engine rebuild project, what do you need to know? 

What you want done, or what part you need, and the model year, and or engine type you have.  

 

Do you still rebuild stock cylinder heads, or stock engines?

Yes.  

 

Do you work on engines other than MG and Triumph?

I do Austin Healey engines as well.   

 

What other parts, or services do you offer?

Custom engine part work. Unique performance parts not offered by traditional British part vendors. 

 

If I buy a set of wheels, or a engine rebuild kit, can I pick them up from you at Acme Speed Shop?

Well you could, but almost all parts are dropped shipped from my supplier to you, so there would still be shipping charges. It is the way most businesses like mine operate today, if I ship, and stock a given part here, I've got to pay shipping to get it here, and that then become part of the cost, and then you have to pay more shipping to get it to you. I mostly just drop ship directly to you, because that saves you money in extra shipping cost.

 

Do you sell and ship parts to people outside the US?

Sure, I have shipped parts to over 20 countries. 

 

Can I come and visit you at Acme Speed Shop?

Sure, just call and schedule, to make sure you catch me. I am for the most part, a one man shop, so if I need to go on a errand, or go to lunch, I just take off, so it always best to call, and let me know when you are coming.

 

I have seen race cars built from your shop, do you still build race cars?

No, these days we specialize in engine building, cylinder head porting, DIY engine rebuild kits, and VTO wheels, and that is more than enough to keep us busy.

Fine Print, yadda, yadda:

Parts left here with no intended scheduled work after 90 days are considered abandoned. I know that may seem harsh, but it happens way too often, so here's the deal if you send something here, change your mind about having work done, and it stays here for 90 or more days after you have notified me of your desire to not get work done by Acme Speed Shop, and I have to store it, I will sell it for storage, which is 25.00 USD per month per box.  I am not free storage for your parts. If that happens any and all proceeds for the sale go to Acme Speed Shop, period. Now if you have something here scheduled for work, and you intended to have work performed, then we will work together, and I have no intentions to get your parts out of my shop.  If parts are here, and you are not having work done, then we can pack it for how we determine it should be properly packed to ensure safe shipping, this labor is no different than normal shop labor, 100.00 per hour, plus the cost of packing materials. Your second choice is to get a third party to come to pick up the parts and you two deal with packing and shipping.  On engine and cylinder head work because most of our work is performance or race, there is no implied warranty, and any warranty that we mutually agree on has to be performed here and it is your responsibility to get it back to us. Now if a part you or we bought in good faith fails, we cannot be responsible for any part failure unless the manufacturer offers a warranty, and because of the nature of performance and race use, most do not offer any warranty. At the end of the day, know we have built many of these engines, and have an excellent reputation for our work, and we try our very best to do all work at high standards. Our goal as always is to satisfy you.
