Can he avoid putting in a new seat by moving up a valve size? Often this can save it. It costs a little more but you end up with larger valves- you gain something from your expense rather than just making it as good as it was before.
Unfortunately no the seat is already cut out. I planned on doing new valves anyways but i will probably just stick with the 1.94 x 1.5. I can do the valve job myself and also the bowl blending so i wont have to worry about cost there. So im sure they are going to clean the head up, mag it, and the just hopefully install the one seat.
