Newbie Forum - Beginner/newbie/general DSM modification questions. First mods, how to run 10's when you haven't run 12's yet, any tech question that doesn't fit in another tech forum.
Using OEM replacement parts are fine.
I usually sell good condition heads with all valves springs etc etc, for around $100 on average.
Valves usually cost $10.00 each. Not including labor to remove and install.
thanks g4 that seems like a good idea seeing as all the quotes ive got on fixing it are much higher than $100, roughly how much does shippin usually run. i live in NC
As long as the valves were just bent, not broken or sunk into the head itself, like embedded then I wouldn't worry about the pistons to much.
This could probably mean ten different things depending on which machinist you talk to. Some might consider just a clean and a valve grind a rebuild, some might consider new guides, new seats, new valves a rebuild. The best way to go about head work is to repair what is damaged and out of spec in this case it is the valves and most likely the guides. You would replaced the cracked guides, check the rest for internal diameter. Freshen up the seats. Freshen up the valves, lap them to the seats, surface, clean and assemble.
