Ron's Precision Machine, Inc. (R.P.M.) was started in the spring of 1978, by Ron LeMmon. Before the machine shop was started, Ron was a printer for approx. 20 years and also working out of his basement and garage, doing porting work on cylinder heads and building engines.
He started racing in 1967 in a '67 Camaro, in A/MP with a L-88 427 B.B.C. 4-speed trans. In 1970 Ron built a 1931 Plymouth roadster which he ran in B/street roadster for approx. 5 years with a 327 cu. in. chevy engine and a Nash-5-speed transmission. In 1975 he also started a chassis shop and built a '27 Ford roadster to race brackets in, with a 327 engine and a 5-speed trans. This car was crashed in Pocatello, Idaho and sold that day. Ron then went back to his home built Plymouth and raced brackets until 1981 where he bought a Pinto and modified the chassis and installed a 327 cu. in. chevy and Nash 5-speed trans. In 1982 Ron took his car to Pomona, Cal. and tried his hand at Super/Gas racing. He tried an automatic trans at that race and could not qualify on the 9.90 index with the automatic so installed the 5-speed back into the car, broke it, then came home to re-group. It was decided to build a 355 cu. in. chevy w/ a better auto trans. built by TCI w/ a trans. brake. This was a real good decision, because the car woke right up and ran a 9.27 at 147 m.p.h. Now the problem was to slow the car down to run the 9.90 index. In 1984 Ron and crew built another '27 Ford roadster to run in S/G. This car was built at R.P.M. in the chassis shop and proved to be one of the best S/G cars in the country!
Ron did real well with this car, ending up in the top ten in the country for 6 years in a row, with two division championships, nine points meet wins, two national wins, and many bracket wins.
In the spring of 1978, Ron's Precision Machine (R.P.M.) was started, and the machine shop flourished until it was closed, with Ron LeMmon as the owner and later after it's incorporation, the president. R.P.M. has built many race engines, marine engines, truck, car, both foreign & domestic engines. Installed, tuned, hoped-up, and also just did the machine work or custom machine work for it's customers. (RPM not longer does any machine work or labor - see below).
Ron has now closed the machine shop and no longer does machine work or offers machine work. Ron (RPM) still offers professional advise and sells parts on the internet with quality parts for customers in the U.S. You can purchase parts from him Monday through Friday.
