Looks good! Not sure if this helps and you probably already know, but 3M makes this wheel thing that looks somewhat like a plastic sponge. It will strip paint like a mad man and no wire in the legs. The plastic or whatever it is still stings though.

That reminds me of a time long ago when a bunch of us kids were playing around with fire crackers "experimenting" and sticking them in things to see what would happen, well one of us thought it a good idea to put one in a plastic pen cap. After it went off we were kinda disappointed for a second until we noticed the blood dripping from tiny holes in our legs. That ended that party.

Builds lookin good. We gotta get you off the boat though to get some work done. LOL

I've heard that before. There are generally two GOOD days, the day you buy it and the day you sell it. LOL

Well got home today and picked up the heads and while inspecting found this. The guy who did the work said they bead blasted and well honestly they where not told to port or polish but heck thats been in there from the factory really. Guess I will take the valves out and grind that stuff off also decided well since the lifters were cupped may as well order a cam how does this cam look?

http://www.summitracing.com/parts/sum-8600/overview/ I already have the lifters and push rods and they ordered a full gasket set so I have the gaskets already.

Almost looks like something someone tried to repair.

It looks to as if they just removed some cast flashing. Maybe to prevent a piece from breaking loose. Sure would like to see it before. How bout taking the picture and asking them.

The valve on the right is not new or rebuilt by my eyes, look at the discoloration. If the stuff you are showing was done before the rebuild, it would be the same color/shade as the rst of the head, not shiny like that. almost looks like a welding wire or a stick that accidentally touched the head while live/hot. Look at the yellow discoloration deep in the chambers, water from the hot tank? Should not be there. Go back and spank the guy.

pS, the discoloation could be when the weld wire or stick touched and arced.

Yeah guys this is the finished head dang real nice guy to. I did bring the casting stuff up to him and he said they just bead blast and what does not come off stays as far as the valve goes they did reuse the old ones except for one that was burned and could not be fixed.
