So I was porting my heads and I hit a cooling passege about half way down the port. I dont think they can be fixed can they?
Anybody know where I can get one head?

Not too bad, you should be able to get another head for 50 - 75 bucks if yours was stock.

All 3.8's for 86 and 87 had the same 8445 heads. Just make sure the one you get hasnt been milled a hole lot more than the one you are keeping

I would just buy two since they are so cheap, and you will have another to practice on

I was just using the pictures from Gnttype.org. So let me get this right, all 3.8's even the N/A cars have 8445 heads?

I'm thinking of JB welding it, sombody told me that stuff works real well.

I think I found one around here locally, yes I admitt, I was hogging them out pretty good, but I was seeing a lot of light shining through that port, they were looking nice, until I put a hole in it :rolleyes:
