    Can damaged parts be repaired?

    This may sound cheap, but I have three cylinder heads all damaged from destroyed pistons. The domes are riddled with tiny nicks and gouges. They kind of look like chocolate chip cookies. Can these be refinished? Or is it not even worth the hassle? Also I have a long driveshaft with great splines on both ends. But someone never greased the coupling. So the bearing/bushing surface is mildly galled. Any one got ideas, or am I being real cheap?

    I bought 2 sets of back up cylinder heads cheap! as insurance so I'm not sure about reconditioning damaged ones? and I have cleaned up drive shaft issues on a lathe with polishing compound! Z

    Yes, damaged heads can be welded up (if necessary) and/or machined to be good as new. It's not all that uncommon.

    I wouldn't think it's cost effective with domes only costing about 25.00, cheaper in some cases. What number do you need?

    I don't need anything. I just have scrap laying around, wondering if they may be spares if I could fix them.

    I went ahead and had my step dad put the driveshaft on a lathe. Bearing surface looks great. Now I need to add a little material to make up for the metal removed. Chrome plating is the only idea I have. Anyone got another suggestion on how to add a couple thousandths to a bearing/bushing surface of a driveshaft?

    It's a 780 dome.

    those are more rare but I bet a machinist wouldn't mess with one for less than 100.00 and you might have to have the other 2 matched to the process! Z
