Are you really in NYC? If youre looking for a set of serviceable heads for cheap, Ive got a pair of stock E7's that came off my '90 PCM 351w that I'd sell cheap. Im about 2 hrs from the city if you wanted to avoid shipping them.

Heads

I'm just south of Jacksonville, FL.
The heads had 600 hours on them when I removed them.
Let me know if you're interested, I've had them sitting around for awhile now, so they aren't going anywhere. Good Luck.

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.

Wow on the heads I had bought a bolt out kit from Sears that works really well on rounded bolt heads. The sockets really grab the rounded head and hold it tight. The kit wasn't too expensive.
