Experts - Can she be Fixed?
Check out my head? Fixable?

unless I'm missing something, yes it's fixable. smooth out the gouges and it will be fine. If you want it like new it could be tig welded and ground smooth but unless there is some structural damage I wouldn't bother. How does the sleeve look on that cylinder?

Did you have a piece of piston bouncing around in there?

Did any debris get caught under the valves?
Question is, what do the valve seats and valve faces look like.

Yeah, I think some piston debris did the gouging. I have to check the valves, but I haven't gotten around to it yet. I've got a new engine coming, but I need to use my head.
I'll post some pics of the piston/cylinders later. I am going to try to salvage them so I can have a back up engine for the next time I do this

Frank, the valves need to be removed and the faces/seats checked.
