Heads redone cost?

#1

Post by vipersniper » Mon Jan 08, 2018 7:49 pm

Hello,
I have a pair of 63 panhead outside oiler heads that I need redone, checked out etc and was wondering what a valve job or having these redone usually cost, just looking for basics I guess as I cant see any other problems with them by just looking at them?
also does anyone have any info on decent shops in the massachusetts area to have the work done if not I guess I could send out as well?
thankyou
VS

Also I thought of purchasing a pair of S&S cylinder heads for my panhead but unsure if it is a easy install, or would I have to change more, I see the exhaust ports would be different but as said I am unsure if I would have to change anything else as well or can I use existing rockers, etc?

I've been quoted about 800-1200 for complete reworking (paid $900 last time - about 6 months ago and included new exhaust spigots) -this was from shop in California so not sure if thats the going rate nationwide

I paid about $800 last year from Bill's cycle in PA. As far as new heads, STD still makes heads in early or late pan plus shovel intake style if you want to go that way.

I have been trying to contact STD development for 3 months but no reply. Used the contact info. on their website (email,phone) and no reply on the emails and they have an answering machine for the phone. Does anyone know if they went bellyup or are they still in business. Would really like to get a set of heads from them but if they can't send a simple reply by email or answer the phone, I have my doubts.

These guys might have some in stock, it’s in Germany and I think they are pretty expensive but are offering a bit of a range, I have ordered parts from them to Australia and it only took a couple of weeks

Edit: now they have none in stock 😳
