engine rebuild

I live close to Seattle WA. and am interested in contacting a machine shop and or rebuilder for my 69 911 engine,. I am not opposed to sending it out but would prefer a local shop, if I can't find some one who is willing to talk with me about my options I may just do the rebuild myself but would need a reliable machine shop ,. I have found most shops won't talk ,they just want me to drop it off and come back when done ,then spring the bill on me and thats BS,. I am a professional machanic but have never done a porsche engine,. thanks Rob

I would contact John Walker at John Walkers Workshop, in Seattle.

Wayne is right, You can do it yourself easily. His book is great and there is endless advice and answers on this forum. I use his book every time, more than the manuals!! You could always get JW to do the machine work and assemble the motor yourself.
