Default GOOD NEWS!!!

contrary to popular belief.... lol so i just got a call from my machinist about my cylinder head... there was absolutley NO bent valves in it... all he could think of was that some how there was a chunk of carbon stuck in the valve grooves alowing the cylinder(s) to not hold compression under a leak test!!!! so all the guy charged me was $150 for complete tear down; inspection; cleaning; re grinding valves and seats; and assembly. (i provided him with all seals required)
he even pressure tested the head b4 tear down and had leak by?? after assembly he tested it and all was good!!! so its getting picked up tonight!!!!!!!!!!
