i'm not so much concerned with the oil gallery balls anymore as i am with the condition of my cylinder head. i've just gotten the call from my machine shop. many new valves and guides are needed. $500+. i was not counting on this as part of my origional price quote. what i was counting on was a $100 fee to resurface the valves. you say you have some old crank cases laying arround. got any good used heads laying arround with them? know anywhere i can get one?
disheartened and ready to give up,
