Not sure if they would work for you or not or if both of your heads are trashed. The one in the picture doesn't look salvable to me, but you never know what a good machine shop could do with them. I don't remember the casting numbers on my heads, but let me know if you're interested in them.
Thanks MikeyOrange! I'll PM you if I'm going to take you up on the offer. Where in the Southeast are you? I'm driving to FL. in the next week or so.

Well my machinist buddie was off to the races with the head, then he broke out the needle scaler and presto! my heads are no good Amazing that such a heavy casting can rot from the outdide in. This project could be a bust, buy a set of heads, gaskets, misc stuff and i'm halfway to the cost of a jasper motor with no guarentee. Go the jasper route, new carpet, interior, and i sell someone a sweet boat but don't make a profit. Arrgh!

Here's some before and after pics of the head.
