I don't know of any machine shop that runs numbers before doing work. Some write the numbers down for warranty work, but no database of stolen numbers, or a way to look them up.
Best you could do is canvas all the shops with flyers that have pictures and numbers on them, but I really doubt it will get to a machine shop if it's fresh, and running. Why would someone steal a complete running engine, and then take it to a shop?
