Looking at the discoloration around the wrist pins, I'd lay money on it getting got. That being the case, I'd go for the full monte regarding machine work.
Just left the machine shop this afternoon.... They come highly recommended by a trusted source and have experience with AMC's.
I hope to get it to them by the end of next week, 2 weeks tops.....for the Full Monty including rebuilding the heads.
I think Im gonna switch up to the Lunati Voodoo cam:
Basic Operating RPM Range: 1,600-5,800
Intake Duration at 050 inch Lift: 220
Exhaust Duration at 050 inch Lift: 226
Duration at 050 inch Lift: 220 int./226 exh.
Advertised Intake Duration: 262
Advertised Exhaust Duration: 268
Advertised Duration: 262 int./268 exh.
Intake Valve Lift with Factory Rocker Arm Ratio: 0.507 in.
Exhaust Valve Lift with Factory Rocker Arm Ratio: 0.527 in.

...either that or the CC XE262...?
Why is picking a cam such a hard choice?
Heads will be rebuild with new springs and roller tip rockers.
