Im gonna guess around 1500 possibly more, not sure what lifters cost.

Is your head cracked or are you looking for another reason.

I've thought about doing this to my truck. so. many. times.
I think the biggest price would be getting the heads re-finished. last i checked i found a guy who would do for around $200 a head.

Don't bother with machining these OHV heads.

New castings are 205 with valves and springs 150 without. Plus shipping.

Hey Zach, was the crack a visible one? I'm really starting to thing I have a cracked head or something of the sort. My rear passenger cylinder keeps fouling the plug causing a misfire. Its not terrible, but my gas mileage is pure poop and the check engine light has come on. I did change the plugs and it helped but of course its just going to foul again I think. I'm just trying to figure out how I can diagnose the problem.
