I agree but I would not have trimmed the guide back. I would have left the guide untouched though. The guides are pretty short as it is.Pretty sure the guides were replaced at some point incorrectly. Looks like they either broke off the boss driving them out or in. Either way,I always drill out most of the guide to relieve the press fit and then easily drive out the thin shell. I heat head and dry ice guide to install. I was taught that method for aluminum heads at the Perfect Circle machinists school a long time ago. Most shops don't care enough to do it that way,it's just faster to drive them in and out and all they care about is wham bam-thank ya man.

Ya things are starting to fall in place. Brodix is still dragging their feet repairing my castings. These new ,untouched castings will be much more reliable since some "porter" hasn't used "the more metal removed the better"porting philosophy on them.

ya know .....i know what your saying! for a while now ever time i think i found a good deal on a used performance part i get bit in the back side! it's because my idea of what a " good part " is and someone else's just seems to be planets apart! so new/unmolested  ( when possible) is always the best way to go.

I called the guy this morning and someone from Canada got in line in front of me. He's been screwing around trying to get paid though for a couple weeks. I offered to buy and immediately paypal him the money but he's going t give the other party till end of day. I hope I get these snagged. Fingers crossed.

I sold my bench a couple years ago. I have a buddy with a fully automated Superflow though about 2 miles away that will let me use it. That said,these heads flow extremely well as cast with a good valve seat/face combination. Since I'm not using this as a race motor I'm just going to run them unmolested to get the best durability/reliability . Brodix didn't put much meat in the bowl/throat area and truthfully most people screw up by trying to do anything there. The walls are just too thin since the bowl/throat is very well designed to start with. The as cast surface should help with atomizing alky also.It's one of those bigger is better things that isn't true. The heads intakes as cast will flow in the area of 400cfm@ 10 inches. That makes a lot of HP right out of the box.I will have to port match and blend the runners to the intake though. No biggie.

On a side note,I get these new castings bought yesterday and Brodix calls up this morning saying my heads are done. 5: :m I may just put them together and sell them or I might put them on the shelf as WTF spares. I dunno. Probably should keep them just in case.
