I see no reason why you could not use a re-conditioned head.I know I wouldn't hesitate about using one. Have you called the used MB parts dealer in Falmouth,Ky? If you have your head re-conditioned,don't let the machine shop shave too much off the head. If they do, you may have to use off-set keys in the camshaft to correct the valve timing. It is okay to do this, and off-set keys are available from the dealer.
