    Bought this head for cheap is it fixable

    Seller told me the engine injested water and sat like that for over a year. after some cleaning I got rid of the rust. One cilinder has major piting next to the exhaust valve. (see pics below.) Can I have this head welded and seat replaced?

    as long as everything just needs to be cleaned and not replaced (guides, seats) i can do it for $275 and you will have a fully rebuilt head that comes back looking better than new
