    A buddy of mine picked up a newer blazer a while back, seems the heads were/are cracked. He has had them welded up and working on getting em surfaced but he's looking for another set as spares, where is the best/cheapest place to pick up decent heads. The junkyards around here aint got squat in the way of pickups etc.

    I bought mine from cylinder heads international in Texas. No up front core charge and I think I paid less then $500 for both complete heads. Theres also a set on ebay bare no valves.

    Well if you need heads I have a set on an engine I want to part.
    I should be close to you too, so if you decide you want to come by and check them out before you buy.

    not sure if it matters, he says it does but he's needing 6.5 not 6.2 heads
