When it became apparent that I was getting hosed, I got hooked up with Phil Wyatt (thank you, Adam). Phil took what was otherwise a chunk of scrap aluminum and turned it into a gorgeous functioning part. Phil charged me $600 to do some pretty extensive work. About half of what my previous source was trying to charge me for half the amount of work!
|My spare head after rework. Phil knocked it out of the park. Triton valve springs and lots of goodies are made in-house...including the valves.|
|C'mon...that's gorgeous! Also, this head is for a single carburetor. My old one was dual. More on that later.|
|Before being sent out for rework, it looked like this. I'm not a fan of sandblasting aluminum. It looks like crap to me. I think you do more harm than good. Chemical cleaning, or soft media are best. I'm not the one who did the sandblasting.|
|You can see that the valve seats got sandblasted too. Yay! That makes doing a valve job soooo much easier...no, not really. I honestly thought that this head was a paperweight until I received it back from Phil.|
