Found at a swap meet. Guy wants $100. Says they have 1 bent valve and need rebuilt. Said he paid $100 for 300 sets of misc. heads from a machine shop, many he scrapped. What should I offer him? No further info.

And since buying used parts is a science, and Random House defines technical as "pertaining to or suitable for an art, science, or the like..." it should be in the techboard.

OK, guess I'll go look there. Allright, current bid $102.50- reserve not met.

We all know auctions can get into a bidding war. Is $100 a good price? I not know!

100$ is a good price, however if the heads are cracked you will have some boat anchors. If they were laying around a machine shop what is the chance they are good? I have seen machine shops have piles of heads laying around for scrap, how do you know thats not what this guys got. If they are not and just have bent valves then it is still a good deal.
