After a frustrating debacle with a friend of a co-worker (yeah that sounds legit doesn't it?) offering to surface my cylinder head for a deal that involved 4 weeks of waiting, a dozen phone messages, whiskey, a pickup truck and several cars and houses being collided into by said machinist and pickup truck I hunted around to find some notable shops in the Denver area.
Found a fair number of them but most are seedy, messy little hole in the walls that I wouldn't trust with a lump of scrap metal let alone a 3rd gen 3S-GTE head that I can't easily replace. I eventually opted for Colorado Custom Cylinder Heads, as they had all around positive reviews and found a few recommendations for. After checking out their facilities and confirming that they know what to do with Yamaha heads I went with them. $82.50 and 2 days later my head comes back neatly bagged up, sonic cleaned and milled a mere .003"
Blurry overhead shot. The rest of the engine is in the blue bin in the corner.
lol i think we found you porn stash lol !!!!!
Exhaust side cleaned up beautifully! Going to ditch the rusted out studs next.
Shiny new surface!
And they even stamped the amount shaved off on one of the tabs off to the side:
So now it's just a matter of getting a new headgasket and some valve stem seals and I can once again resume reassembly!
