Lightbulb Re: Leatherback '28-'29 Group

I have a '' 28 '' leatherback. been setting for 25 years or more.Started restoring by getting new glass in the windshield frame (as all other glass was good) I then discovered rotten wood.I couldn't get engine to turn over!Took it apart,and discovered block was cracked! Does anyone know of a good machine shop in the Phoenix,AZ. area that is familar with the A ? I found a shop that can weld the block ( it is cracked on one cyl.-between cyl.& exh. valve ) Then I would have to have it sleeved!The welding would melt the babbit-so I would like to have the block machined for the reg.type main bearing inserts. Thanks for your help!!
