I'm rebuilding a Giulia SS head, and the machine shop managed to mess it up pretty badly. Does anybody know how much I can skim off the head safely, or what the minimum hight is for a 1600 SS head?
:confused:

Head thickness

Hmm, going from memory here, aren't Alfa heads 4.412" deep? Can't remember the exact number, but I know my 1600 GTA head is milled 0.100", and the valve seats are just barely standing proud of the head. I think that is near the limit.

Where are you located? If your precious head truly needs some good attention, there are a few gurus you may want to consider going to.
