The only head close to me is the Left side of a 96 2.5... we only have a few yards here and their selection is limited. Nearest 2.2 heads are about 200mi away in Albany.

So, the machine shop said that they could check and machine both heads, check the valves and fix as needed, etc. for $360. Compared to used heads which would run me about $200 for a pair. I know people aren't keen on rebuilding these motors but for an extra $160 it sounds like a good deal.

The main issue is time. The machine shop will take 4-5 days, and I want to get up and running ASAP so I can get back to work. Maybe I will throw used heads in and learn how to do valves on the old one.

I also have the 2.2 in my 1994 which isn't running right now; would those heads work? They have 200k on them but when it ran it ran good. Then I could send the old heads off and replace them next week.
