Any Florida diesel clubs & anyone know a machine shop

So my family and I live in Pinellas County and were planning to move back to Ohio where im from but recently decided to stay as my business is doing too well to walk away and start fresh. So I'm trying to find things for us to do locally to meet people and just get outta the house. When I had my powerstroke there were active local communities that had meetups and such. Is there anything like that for the Cummins enthusiast? Next question is I want to get my head o-ringed on my '96 12ver and am having a real hard time finding a machine shop that can do it. Any suggestions?

Jeff Garmon's shop in Griffin, GA, if you're willing to cross the state line.

Good times with one of the diesel perf pioneers.

That's even better. I'm living in Dade with my brother until my house is being built. Much appreciated!

Any diesel heads or events in the area? I need to bounce some ideas off other first gen guys preferably before I go to shops.

Us first genners are generally too cheap to hang out at shops, as we can do our own tinkering, unlike the over valved types with HPCR systems & "functional" puters
