Cylinder head work

Post by gonen2 » Thu Mar 13, 2014 2:35 am

I would like to get a set of head recondition (I think that is the term). Just wondering who has everyone used in the past. Can you also include what was done, cost and amount of time it took.

Years ago I used Wagamon brothers in Columbia Heights and Headwerks in Bloomington.

I'd recommend Headwerks

I got a pretty high quote from headwerks ($700-$1000) for head work seems high to me. I am not looking to build high performance heads just to freshin them up a bit.

I used the local auto value store that has a machine shop up in St. Cloud. I think my cost was 800 bucks but that was for a port and polish with a valve job. Its been 3 years I think. Took them 2 weeks to get it done. Older guy in the back did them but his name is slipping my mind.

Side Street Engine and Machine in Baldwin WI did a couple sets for me. It was pretty cheap and they came back looking like new.

I know this is a little late, but in case you are still looking, Gosh does them as well, but I don't have his info, I believe Auto Value is about $200 a head to just go through them with any parts being needed extra. Also Tri-star engines does heads, they can be found online.
