where would i take a cylinder head to have it resurfaced? would a regular mechanic do that? a general machine shop?

Machine shop.
>>
>>23226717
if the machine shop isn't filled with engine parts you're at the wrong one.

A machine shop.
If you're white don't bother going into the Mexican ones. They'll fuck up your shit out of racial spite.
If you're brown they'll do as good a job as they do on any of their own shit. Take that to mean what you want it to.
Do not go to a chain one. My local napas do machine work but they're absolute trash and always packed to the fucking gills.

just take a razorblade and scrape the gunk and shit off of it, as long as you do the rest of your work correctly it shouldn't leak. just mind the metal, and don't do a direct scraping action that's going to cut into it, just hold it perpendicular and go side to side.

oh you mean the mechanic's worst nightmare. Go to a specialty shop, lest Cletus cracks your engine trying to rebuild your engine for a simple fix

This is excellent advice in general, does not just apply to machine work.

How to end up with a cracked block: the post

What exactly is nightmarish about the M50/M52 inline 6's?
>>
>>23226717
Nigga just use 220 grit sandpaper and a thick sheet of glass. It's really easy and it comes out pretty dang flat.

>>23226952
How is using an abrasive disc on the cylinder head going to crack the block

>>23227023
>it was real in my mind

>>23226973
Absolutely nothing. Just a BMWfag being a BMWfag and thinking his car is made of magic that doesn't make sense unless you have a master's in mechanical engineering.

>>23226952

I had an issue with a company I do business with yesterday, calling customer service three or four times until you're able to get a hold of a white who will help you is a song and dance I have to go through every time I have a problem with them
