    Yeah online shopping has yielded prices on new heads between 875 and 1300$. That is the bare head price, with no valves/springs/etc. for that price I should go across town and pick up the beat but running '53 currently on craigslist..of course sneaking it into the driveway might be difficult.

    Awesome thanks sound guy!

    thus far here is what I have come up with:

    Option 1. Bare head $385,needs a valve job, but has been magnafluxed for cracks, would require a 16 hour round trip to pick it up, or unknown shipping charge.

    Option 2. Bare head $450, needs a valve job, status of cracks unconfirmed at this point but only an hour away.

    Option 3. The machine shop I am using completed the magnafluxing of the head and confirmed only the 1 crack. While it does go into the seat of the exhaust valve on cyl #2 he thinks it is fixable. He also confirmed the valves are in need of guides, So for $411 he can weld the head and do the valve job.

    I'd use him to do the valve job on any other head I purchased, So the question is do I go with the welded fixed head and keep the cost to a bit over $400, or to I pop for an uncracked head and end up with a final product in the $620 range? If I could get someone to sell me an uncracked head for under $300, I'd go with that but I'm not holding my breath.

    I also need to confirm that the 2 head options I have found thus far are 7/16 head bolts.

    sounds like fixing yours is the most economical.

    otherwise the uncracked head would be my choice. sounds like driving or shipping makes it way more $$ though.

    Well I found a local head, for an only moderately high price. The oddest part of this is that when I called the local place they quoted me a price. When I dropped by and asked again they quoted me a price that was $100 bucks less, so I bought it. Customer service is certainly a bit odd at times. Any way I had my local machine shop do a valve job with my valves from my original head. Here are photos of the new and original head, along with one showing the crack.

    Well things are moving slowly as other projects take precedence. I have the new head bolted on, valves are adjusted. Got to get the manifold on and procure a radiator before a test run. Here are some pictures. I'm a little concerned that the rocker arms aren't very flat compared to the newly resurfaced valvesA new NAA project now someday a new loader-img_2003-jpgA new NAA project now someday a new loader-img_2005-jpgA new NAA project now someday a new loader-img_2007-jpgA new NAA project now someday a new loader-img_1998-jpgA new NAA project now someday a new loader-img_2000-jpgA new NAA project now someday a new loader-img_2001-jpg
