Stroker, if you want excellent quality work done, send em to HeadHog. He is definitely "the man" when it comes to old heads. He did mine and they are truely better than factory.

I can vouch for HeadHog, too. I sent him a set of 48 heads, a good while back. He reworked the inlet nipples, and replaced the exhaust flanges. Both looked better than new. The exhaust flanges looked like original casting.
