I have done that on small engine heads......also, resized a small engine rod the same way......It worked, but they are 10 hp at 3600 rpm, not 300 hp at 5400 rpm

Your picture instantly goes away on my system..

A large belt sander can be used for cylinder head resurfacing.. I had one years ago with a 14" wide belt on a 30" table. Not real precision but does the job in a pinch.
