    I needed to get my head checked out for warpage, so I took it to the only machine shop here in town. Unknownst of their AWSOME work! (ha.)
    They had my head for all of 2 hours!, and this is what they managed to accomplish-

    :eek:

    All in all, they managed to (1)Break a big chunk off of my cam cap. (2) Put a crack near the severed piece(3rd pic down, it's over exposed from the flash..). And (3) Siezed up one of my rockers...

    AAA+ for Buddy's Machine Shop...


    NOT.

    I don't really understand HOW it happened, and aparently neither do they. The manager/boss/owner w/e just simply said, "it musta happened when my guys disassembled it."

    I'd put my money on it having been dropped.
    How else would it happen?! ya know?

    They obviously didn't charge me for any "WORK" they did. (i.e. washing it and breaking it.), and they wanted to SELL me a new head!

    ugh.. what newbs..

    You mean they aren't paying for it or replacing it?

    Dude, get a lawyer or something....sue the shit out of them.

    See how much an OEM brand new head costs and sue them for that much; then buy a built head with the money. :)
