Subject: FTE Perf - 429/460 Heads

I saw this ad on a net classified and requested more details, which were
provided the next day. As a fan of the 385 series who has spent some
bucks on heads for my hobby, It sounds like a fair deal. I don't know
the guy, don't know anybody who has ran his heads, nor have I seen his
work. The area code is Oregon; maybe Muel knows him or someone familiar
with his work.

Pricewise, this is what it costs me to have a set of DOVE or other small
chamber 429 heads done in Las Vegas:

Stock, boneyard heads - $100-150 (getting scarce)
Hard seats, bronze guides, SS valves, seals - $510
Not included: Decking, Porting, remove emission bosses,
springs, guideplates, adjustable studs.

I've paid the shipping on CJ and PI bare heads from the east coast and
it runs about $90 for UPS. The way I calculate it, you could have the
same cost as he advertises IF you do your own porting, milling and
grinding and get the bare heads for nothing.

Sorry for taking up the bandwidth but if he delivers as advertised, it's
the best deal I've seen for 429 heads. Here it is:

George,
Here is the information you requested. That would be fine if
you posted my information, in fact I would greatly appreciate it. I
hope to have a web site going within the week. At the end I have
included a shorter message for you to use in posting. If you have any
questions/comments feel free to call (if I'm not in just leave a message
and I will get back to you ASAP) or e-mail. Thanks for the interest,
and I hope to hear from you soon.

FYI... Area Code 530 is Chico CA not Oregon
