alright so im helping a friend do over his top end. we are gonna buy a new head for 200 bucks from service honda.
i have two questions for anyone who bought from them or a new head in general.

1.)do the exhaust bolts come installed on the new head or even come with it?
2.)do the valve guides come pressed and installed in the head?

i ordered the following

- new head
- new intake and exhaust valves
- new gaskets,o-ring,dowels
- new cotters, seals, springs, valve spring seats, valve spring retainers, buckets


all in all not too bad... 135 bucks for all the valves and its components. and 200 for a new head.

also, will be replacing the spark plug, new engine oil, oil filter, tranny oil. also will be replacing the cam sprocket scews with new ones.

I would have thought the guides would be pre-installed.

I don't think the dealer would mess around pressing guides in a new head when they order one for a repair.


As for the exhaust screws. Just take them from the old head.

yes they come with guides and seats. if they didnt have guides then you would have to have a valve job done also. sounds like you have everything you need.
