    Arrrghh how bad did my dog just screw me

    heard a loud thud in my basement and ran downstairs gun in hand to see what was going on. i notice my engine laying on the basement floor, knocked off the stand it was on about 12" off the ground. my dog must have decided he was cold and grabbed the towels that i had covering the engine up. only one head suffered some light damage. the million dollar question- are these fine to run as is or should i buy another brand new set? not excited to spend another 400.00 on this engine

    I would think those would still seal and hold just fine.
    I'll have to add that to my list of reasons my girls are not getting a dog.
    Thanks.

    Yes that might have been real bad. I was going to bolt them on yesterday too! The little guy is a chi wow who thinks he's 100 lbs. he's quite the character

    With the ocd I have i would change the spark plug. I never use a plug that has been dropped.

    Take a full sheet of 320-400 grit sand paper tape the corners to a known flat surface ( I use a glass table top) and sand the head sealing surface in a circular motion on the sand paper till the entire sealing surface is shiny all over and you should be fine using the head, Tommy Jordan

    Should be fine. As long as combustion sealing surface is good you won't have air leak. Double check surface make sure not warped. Use machinist rule and feeler gauge or can take a carbide scraper and move the high material on the surface. Done it a ton of times to 4 stroke engine. Metal is metal.
