    Well I got this head for free from a friend that bought a new head for his type r awile back and finally went and picked it up today.

    2 spark plug tips broke off.

    my question is can this be fixed? seems to me that you could shave the head and clean out the combustion chambers?

    If it can be fixed I may sell it or fix it and put it on my lsvtec.

    Comments please.

    thats what i was thinking, i looked through the head and pulled each valve and didnt look like the tips went into the head. i picked little balls of the spark plug tips out of the block so looks like i got a good deal for some minor labor.
