how long does it take to get heads serviced after taking them off?
 
how long would it take to have my heads checked for cracks, holes, etc?

You will have to ask who ever is doing it.

if you are only wanting them checked, not machined; a shop can "usually" check them in a couple of days depending on their schedule. if you are in good with the shop, and the have the equipment open they will sometimes do it on the spot.
i guess it depends how good of a customer you are:mwink:

Where are you located? If your near mid Missouri you can get head magnafluxed with same day service due to fact that the plant I worked at has closed. If they're clean and dry I'll magnaflux them while you wait for free.

Now there is a deal. You can't beat that.

If it's a set of small block heads: cleaned, magnafluxed, resurfaced: 1-2 hours if the guy is in a hurry. Plus, we'll check the valve for sealing.
