No one is required to have professional integrity, I've come to expect it because it is expected of me, but as Cobalt pointed out no one is required to do more than asked.
BTW "Cobalt327," is that a reference to the color, the mineral, or the car?
So, by your criteria, it's the job of a machinist to not rebuild any heads below- what? "standard"? Or to only rebuild engines that are deemed "worthy"? Your basis of "Integrity" is flawed to the extreme- there are guys who LIKE the 883 heads- look at any bomber class/ hobby stock dirt track race and you'll see DOZENS of sets of 883's being run.
