David - all I had to have done to the head was removal of two broken exhaust manifold studs (only one of which I broke - other was MIA) and having a heli-coil put in one hole. Head was flat, so no rework required. Biggest problem I had was a stripped timing cover bolt (had to remove cover to replace tensioner). Wound up getting a round carbide bit for my drill, grinding the head off, and slipping the cover off the stud (which then turned out by finger). All in all, not a bad job, just wish it were a bit cooler working on it. Benn bloody hot in Michigan recently.
