^ so if the valve guide has moved, does that mean I do indeed need a new head?

Unless the valves are in very good condition ( not likely ) you'd be wise to install new valves.
I always install new valves anytime I replace a head.


And If I were you, I'd find me another mechanic...ASAP!

On dumbtree.com it is a part number for a bare head. Sorry bud. I mean, if you already had a head on the machine, couldn't you just re-use the old parts? Atleast they'd be the same age as the other side, and there wouldn't be any performance issues, right?
