Just a word of advise... Have the heads shaved just enough to flatten them up while it's apart. Shouldn't take more than a few thousandths. Don't plane over .0070-.008" off of them. Don't trust a straight edge to tell you they're flat. Just mill them and be done with it. Also have them checked for cracks while they're at the machine shop.

I was all about RCD at first....but just how clean MKMs kit was, is what sold me. Seemed there was more detail put into it also, and I'm all about details. Plus, I like how MKM sold 245 to RCDs 18 on Ebay.

Will do....my installer mic's the heads himself, and if they are uneven, he sends them off.

Thx for all the input guys
