Hi to all: I need a single, bare CJ D0OE-R cylinder head. I have a pair, one perfect, untouched and one repaired, milled, cracked valve guide. I have valves, springs, retainers and all else needed for a build, but do not want to risk all the work and $$$ on an engine that may grenade itself because of this.

Broken DOOE- R

Well the repair looks OK, but the squish area is a lttle rough. A piston thrust its head through it when ar rod quit during a race. The repair was a molten cast iron pured in and the head was milled. When they installed a new valve guide on the intake, the old guide cracked from the tip all the way to the roof of the bowl. How bad is that in your view?
