    Awesome, the only cap I was worried about was the number one. It looks like where the seal sits is slightly different.

    Not the main caps anyway. I dont know if u can have the head line bored but I wouldnt think so since the bearings for the cams are built in

    You can line bore the cam saddles, however it may not be a good idea if the head is warped. Torquing the head bolts will flatten the head to the block if it is slightly warped, but if the cam saddles are line honed it will cause the cam bores to bow and pinch the cam when it is torqued down.

    I would have the head straightened first and then have it line honed if you are going to go this route, but I would advise just getting a new cylinder head with the matching caps.

    Awesome, I would totally just buy a new head if the price was right. The head I currently have was rebuilt less than 10k ago. Why when I bought it the guy didn't have the caps is beyond me. I have had it inspected and everything is good. Just trying to get my baby back up and running.
