Dropped the cylinder head off at the machine shop today, for cleaning/surfacing and a valve job is $250. I believe that included checking for cracks as well.

Hey T,

Glad to see your have your project moving forward.

$250 is a good price.  The number 3 chamber, on stock heads, is where the common crack from the water port to the chamber appears.  Any good head shop should look for that.

What valves, valve seals, guides, seats, are they going to install?  Do they use a specific brand?

Also, Iím curious what valve/seat angles they use and recommend?

I'd like to know if they deck the head at all, and if they need to, how much did they have to deck it?  If they remove anything from the deck, they should measure to know whether or not it may have been previously decked.  If so, the locating pins will need to be measured (or ground) to make sure their height will not prevent the head from seating down onto the head gasket and block deck. But.... you probably already know this.  :gap:

If you have not already, I recommend that you (or the shop) check the exhaust studs.  Itís common for older heads to have studs that will spin inside the head.  To help prevent this, I highly recommend NOT using the factory clamp-style nuts.

Gnarls.  :gap:
