Don't worry it's not that sort of workshop that people with good cars will take them anyway, just a local workshop

For those of you who are raving on about the cylinder head picture posted
It's not that bad I know it looks bad but it doesn't matter
I use to work in a engine reco workshop and when u need to weld up water galleries , weld jp valve seats to repair rust it doesn't matter how it looks because once u grind it back and surface deck the cylinder head u won't be able to tell because most of the weld metal will get machined back

But that one picture does look pretty bad dunno what the hell happen there
When a cylinder head is that f***ed it needs that much welding we would normally tell the customer to buy another 2nd hand cylinder head

Agreed.

You can certainly do that, but obviously with better techniques. As Kemp said, it'll get machined down to look schmick again anyways.

for the time it would cost to get it smooth,would be ezyer and cheaper to get a new reco head.

No it's not
Depend on how much repair work is involved
If it just one or 2 even 3 different repair spots it's still cheaper to weld them up, grind them back and then surface deck the cylinder head

When surface decking a head it's easy
Bolt the cylinder head so it's level
Set height
Set speed
And away u go

Not much involved the machine does all the work for u

That head sorta looks like a FE head of like a ford econno van, mazda van ect..

You would be surprised what gets repaired on heads. Buy a "new reco head" do you mean a brand new head or a reconditioned head? as thats a poor example of head repairing in that photo. But once all done that equals a reco head.

Any new heads of the shelf it is best to get surfaced and checked out to your engine builders specs as their not as good as they could be. So either way they get machined.

Not so much a fail fab but a fail information of the internet man. Had a guy come into an engine reconditioning where my brother works with a blown Soarer out the bonnet street machine style. Which damaged the crank snout at a power cruise. The pulley turned on the crank damaging the key way ect.. So its getting a freshen up. They guy doesn't want to reco his heads, doesn't want a second key way put on the crank which is what you do when you make a serious blown car for strength. Doesn't even want to get it balanced. But he did want to get the rod bearing clearance matched. Something he told them he read F1 cars do so it must be good and make power/reliability. Haha.. to stingy to do the basics but picks 1 thing he read on the net and wants that. They told him not to waste his money and their time with that if he wont even get it balanced. He still didn't want to balance it.
