Resurfacing flywheel

I'm putting a project together and got a flywheel with the muncie I bought. I want to get it resurfaced but am not sure where to go. I called my local NAPA store and they were no help. I also checked O'reillys website and there is no O'reilly's with a machine shop within 100 miles of me. I'm in a NW suburb of Chicago, so I thought it would be easy to find someone. Any help? Thanks

Most any Machine Shop can resurface it. An Automotive Machine Shop would be best, as they're already setup to do them.
Many Parts Stores have stopped all machining, even Drums/Rotors. Only one that does Drums/Rotors where I live is Oreilly's, none do Flywheels.

Try to find a shop with a dedicated flywheel grinder. A lathe-mounted job won't do the job properly. Better yet, ask the shop if they use diamond-based grinding stones.
