Alright the head is being worked on as we speak by a good friend of mine.
The plan is to keep the stock valvetrain, replace the valve stem seals, port and polish, 3 angle valve job and also last but not least. Cryogenic Treatment
I bought the head from someone local, claimed to have come right off a running motor...but from the pictures I'm about to post...you decide
It was pretty filthy
After removal of all the valve train came the jet wash and off to cryogenics
Here is the temperature data sheet the cryogenics place provided me. The head shell and parts were brought down to -300*F for 24 hours, then was slowly brought back up to 300*F and then brought back down to atmospheric temperature.
Back from jet wash and cryo
Onto the Intake manifold gasket matching
3 of 4 Intake ports matched
Also started on the combustion chambers
Exhaust ports being ported .20 over. Still needs media blast and polish
Aaannndd the valve stems showed up
