    I am purchasing a B18b with bad valves. I was going to replace them with stainless steel or titanium, but after talking to a friend, he just told me to get a new head. Which one should I go with? Any help on locating either parts would help.

    thanks

    really no need to replace the head unless its really damaged, sometimes you can find a loaded head for less then it would cost to replace the valves though....just run a google search ebay etc I got lucky and found a full set of valves on ebay for $40 good luck

    All depends on what "bad valves" means.. Why exactly are they "bad"?
