Drop down compression test indicates bad head gasket, so I took it off and sent it to the auto parts store they said the head is it is warped 10 thousand, How much can I take off to still have a usable head? and also I still don't know if the head is cracked. the guy said he did not want to spend to much time until I found out the max that can be taken off.

Machine shop should be able to look this up. If bad, some have gotten new heads from Clearwater in Florida.

thanks cussboy I decided to buy a complete refinished head because not sure if the original head was cracked yet and did not want to spend the time or the money. this company warranties its work and comes with all the necessary gaskets.

A machined head is not much less expensive than a brand-new head !!! Some like the mechanical/adjustable valves, quieter.
