Heads are back from the machine shop. The owner cleaned all the oil and crud off them and checked them out. He stated they did not need a full valve job and were just fine. There was a fair amount of oil burnt on to combustion chambers, but now their all clean. Got to love dealing with honest people. He could have just did the full work and charged me but instead it only cost me $40.00. I will be installing an oil catch can inline with the pcv valve as I'm suspecting that oil is being sucked in the intake manifold and causing detonation that sounds like the valve chatter. I've also clean off the piston faces so everything should be all set.
I'll be getting an early start tomorrow and should have my motor all back together my noon.
