My heads, 781's, sat in a garage for 10 years. They were put in a vat and then shaved .010 to get rid of some pitting. All new components put in.
Looking good now.
how much does a rebuild and valve job cost? Does anybody know of a good machine shop in riverside or san diego areas?

If my original motor can be saved and made to look like this after sitting 30+ years in the guys front yard, And had to soak the engine over a month in the hot tank and beat the pistons out, and installing 2 sleeves. I would say they can be saved.

I had my 3919840,s rebuilt for $700 US.They were degreased and the 2.190/1.71 valves where replaced with manley swirl 2.250/1.880.The heads were shaved a few thousands and we reused my springs but replaced the locks and retainers.The price included a competition grind and PC seals installed.This was at a Michigan shop.Hope this helps you.:thumbsup:
