Bullet Cams does great work and alot of engine shops use them.I have a callais crank that they redone and have no issues. Much better than pitching a 2500$ crank in the garbage. Besides I was only few thousands away from the correct clearance.Chrome is a much harder surface than the crank material.All mercury prop shafts have chrome on the rear seal and prop surface.AS long as your crank is not cracked.
Good Luck

I've always used Moldex, but it has been a while.

Mark with precision also uses Bullet. You should have crossed the lake with us saturday evening,nothing like running 100+ in 30-40 knot thunder storms.It was good to see ya we need to hook up again before winter.

I've always heard Moldex was one of the best.

They did some work for me a few years ago. It was good and priced reasonable.
