I wanted to see the interest here for having Len(HAM) build them up with his specs and quality.

These are the heads:
https://aapistons.com/products/aa-bare-2-0l...stud-round-port

There is a discussion about them here:
http://www.914world.com/bbs2/index.php?sho...308377&st=0

This is Len's review of them:
https://newsite.hamheads.com/2017/07/01/aa-...9144-knockoffs/

This is what Len has said:

"If World members can get up a group buy of a minimum of 3 pairs by the end of the year, I'll do them turn key for 1275.00/pair.
That includes all machine work and all the same parts that go into my RS+ heads: Manley valves, Crower springs, chromoly retainers, ground keepers, guides, and seats. - the best parts available for T4 heads.

Add 240.00 to ceramic coat the chambers, exhaust ports and valve tops.

The non-group buy cost is 1400.00/pair."

So I will most likely be getting a pair since I have a dropped valve on my current heads. Unless by some chance I can find a reputable machinist to rework my heads and they can actually be reworked. The cost of doing so might be more than buying these new. Anyway I have a question out to Len about the turn around time. I will also ask him about the 15% discount AApistons offers on their heads if you add them via FB. Maybe he can already get them at a discount.

So we would only need 2 more World members to place an order to get them $125 off. Does this price seem workable? I don't have much knowledge on the going rate for refurbished heads. The only price I have to go off on is the RS+ heads that Len uses AMC castings are $3200. So this is about a third to have all the same work on these AA castings.

***UPDATE****
In order to get on the list you must contact Len (info@hamheads.com). You will need to send him your mailing address so he can calculate shipping. He will also take a check or money order. You will send it to him and he will not deposit it until the heads are available from AA. This looks to be somewhere around mid December. As soon as you send the payment it locks your spot in line.
