Took head off engine, here are pics, think I can get parts to rebuild it? Its a 1972, but I don't know what kind of auto it came out of. All ther parts guys need an application. When I say "wood splitter" and they don't know how to use engine casting #'s I'm at a dead end. Here are links to pics.

Thanks. I should think about rebuilding my 400 sbc for those kind of prices. I just got a eldebrock - performance intake for free!. My wife sure misses the 400 power compared to my 305 with a low cylinder.

How much would it cost for a shop to tank and rebuild the 4 cylinder pinto head?

My grandfather came over friday and the first thing he did was check the ridge on the top of the cylinder. He is an old mechanic. He says we will clean it up with a hone and it should run fine. He said the ridge is very small - hardly any wear!!
