Default Who can repair my Aluminum head combustion chamber damage?

Broke a rod which smoked one of the combustion chambers on a Butler Performance CNC ported aluminum head off my 461. I'm in PA. Anyone that can rebuild the combustion chamber anywhere near my area?

Any help will be greatly appreciated...this is a major set back for us! The whole motor is basically junk, so trying to salvage the heads if possible.

I could only post a link to the picture for now. I'm hoping that someone can digitize an adjacent combustion chamber and CNC the repaired chamber to a very close replica.

I believe both heads have bent valves and will need seat work and all. I'm looking for a one stop shop...I ship the heads to you and you ship them back ready to bolt on the new short block.

If you're willing to ship them off, HED does quite a bit of welded repairs and are most certainly a one stop shop.

I would start with Butler Performance. If the head has a specific CNC'd chamber they can probably repair the damage and re-cut that chamber. If it is aluminum it can most likely be repaired.

Slawko can most definitely do it.....
I've seen some pretty bad f'd up heads look like brand new when done, he can digitize the chamber and CNC it. New seats and probably a better valve job then you had.
