    Ellis Machine Shop in Batesville is the only place we have. They do pretty good work most of the time. Dont know about price but you could call and see. If you take them to any place mark them somehow so you can tell your getting the same heads back. Put you a grind mark on the outside back of the head. I have been there and done that.

    I was in the same situation a few weeks ago. After a long heated battle with my wife I decided I really didnt.

    P.S. My wife is a mechanic.

    Don't know about up there, but if you can find a good place down this way I'd be happy to cart the parts back and forth for ya. We're making pretty regular trips for the next couple of months until we make the move. Just let me know if you need a hand.

    May be a little to far for you, but the best place around IMO is Ark. Cly. Head Service in Wynne.

    googled Crow-Burlingame and got a harrison number but they don't do it. gave me number to premier auto machining. ever heard of them? said $20 to clean and magnaflux $100 for valves and other stuff is extra... the truck only has 108k miles on it so they shouldn't be bad, maybe valves and guides.


    keep the suggestions comming
