He replaced all 4 valve seats in my heads for me. Very happy with the work out of his shop. I just texted with him and we might go with a 3.44 bore when I am ready. That would give me 86 inches.

I talk to him about fly cutting a set of cases for 37/16 cylinders but your the first person I have met that knows his work he was extremely knowledgeable about using a heat sink out of a brass plate so not to distort the cases when welding 900 cases I’m glad you mentioned you know his work

I sent him a terrible looking set of heads. All 4 seats were too deep. I sent Kibblewhite valves and springs. He provided seats and guides. When I received the heads back they were set up for my minus minus cams and ready to paint and install. The seats were radiused into the port and all 4 ports were cleaned up, no flow issues. They were returned to me in a nice plastic shipping crate which I am still using. I have had no problems with the heads at all and my little 64" flat screams.

That's very good. I thought Dan had retired to the Golf Course. He is pricey but would guess certainly in the top 5 Ironhead Porters in the world.

When you get them back, have a good look at them. I cannot see the magic in there. But it's there. They just work.
