head work

Anyone have any machining done to heads? Ive got a set that machine shop is telling me need to have more than .006 taken off and they would have to do some valve grinding after machine work. I need input on this thanks

The most that you can take off these heads is .008

But, yes they can be machined

I would...people machine them all the time... Just make sure they pressure test them and magnaflux them for cracks...Hairline cracks are hardly noticeable but will show up later down the road
