That is some pretty bad pitting, acutally looks like erosion. But, still repairable. Tig weld up to build it back up then resurface the whole head. Or, did you get another one already.

How does the gasket look when you set it down?

The coolant passage isn't under a great deal of pressure so if the gasket still seals around it you might be okay. Of course, you'd also explain to the customer that you can't guarantee it and it would be their call.

As far as JB weld..... you'd better be able to make it FLAT.

:WhiteRhino: You're an auto teacher, I'm sure you already know this! :P

I gave him his options...then told him it might or might not work....for a total of about 40 bucks we are going to try it. He has abother motor but it needs a rebuild. So we'll do the JB then start rebuilding the other motor.
