Well, finally got the 360 running. Lots more to the story, but here's the short of it. The mechanic got me another set of heads and I took them to a different machine shop, they were done in two weeks and a week later I got it back together and running. Such a relief to be done with that shop. Here's the link to the engine after break-in, headers only. Exhaust is going on tomorrow. Thanks for all of the suggestions, inspiration and encouragement!

Wow, bet it is a good feeling to have it back from that shop - I could only imagine the relief after that long!

Engine sounds great, and the CJ looks great too!

Any chance of getting some more pics of it once everything is buttoned up?

Did you ever determine what the problem was with the heads?

Thank you! I will post another video or two once the exhaust is on and I've tightened down the header bolts again.

When the original machine shop machined for the larger valves, they used the wrong tools for the job and cut at too much of an angle. They cut into one of the water passages on the #2 exhaust valve, about the size of a BB. All of the other ports were done the same way so they must have been paper thin. Also, when I inspected the heads after I pulled them off, there were numerous holes where too much material was machined. Not sure what they were thinking...

You've got to be one of the world's most patient people, I hope you got some re-compensation from all of your time and money spent. Great job!

Ha Ha! Thank you! My patience finally payed off! I did get a set of heads from the shop and a little cash, not nearly enough to cover the machine work on the heads, but I'm so glad to be done with them now I just don't care.

Here's a video with the mufflers on. Sorry about the bad video quality but the sound works great! A few pics below the video also.
