Post Machine Shops in AR or MO

Looking for a good machine shop in Arkansas. I live in northern Arkansas, but a shop in central AR would be ok. Maybe even shop in south Missouri. My brother in law recently had a 350 worked over. He had Oreilly's send it to someplace in KS or Kansas City.

I am looking to have a block cleaned and checked, any needed overbore done, heads checked and cleaned. Just the very basics. The heads are decent enough and cash is short enough that I don't think I need porting or a three angle valve job, but may need hardened valve seats as the heads are from 68(i know some debate this, that is why I say may).

The motor is a pontiac.

The NAPA parts warehouse in Little Rock, on Forbing Road has a machine shop attached. I've not used their services, so I can't recommend them from personal experience. They seem to stay busy and in business.

Thanks, we have a couple of shops here in town, but neither have the greatest reputation. I guess with such a small town they have a captive market. I will consider the shop you mentioned.
