Is this head usable?
Pretty sure I need another one. Anyone got one laying around? It is a 01' 1200 65u non PV.

The head looks fine to me. those dings aren't going to hurt anything just make sure it is not warped. you can lay a straight edge across it to check it.

If you can run your finger over the combustion chamber and feel any snags, remove them. Possibly could cause "hot spots" and pre ignition.

If you really feel daring, clean up the spots that stick out with a dremel. Then have it milled very slightly for compression, woot!
LOL I had an exciter with these engines and had it 65 mph. The heads looked really bad when I started. BTW, smoothing the tops out will help out when you have more compression to get rid of hot spots and flow etc. etc.

Thanks for the input everyone. This ski is back up and running again ...... Well it was for a couple days. Now I think the starter is gone. Gotta love seatow.
