Default 99-00 BP-4W Head

I have an extra 99-00 cylinder head (I understand that this particular head is from a 00). It's complete with exception to the cams. The cams that are installed are showing some surface rust because I didn't coat them with oil. I pulled the bearings off the top of the cams to have a look, and they look good.

Lots of pics in my section of the Miata Pictures link. I put them up for someone who asked to buy it from me, but never came through on his end.

Would like $350 + shipping for it. Which is a crazy low price in consideration of the cams. I keep seeing complete heads going for $600+. So you could get this one and a set of webcamshafts and be in it for around $700. No cam cover (aka valve cover) included. No manifolds included. Shipping on your dime from 30548.

Thanks

Would a cam shaft regrind be practical to clean up the cams, not change profile, just make them usuable?

Depending how bad the rust is, a scotch brite pad may remove it without causing other issues.

I am honestly unsure about if the cams are salvagable or not. The exhaust cam is further gone than the intake cam. I would not be comfortable selling the assembly as "good, but you need to scotch brite or grind & micropolish" because I have no knowledge or expertise in the area. I priced it low so the buyer could easily afford a set of webcamshafts and no one is unhappy.

Are you close to DropTopDrifter? I'll be down there Sunday, and this is tempting.

25 minutes from his old place, 45 minutes maybe from his new place if he's moved in already.
