** Total cost for rebuild was $2,600 with all needed parts supplied by the builder. The orig. head did not require anything other than a normal rebuild. The builder told me the 261 heads were really bad for cracks due to the fact the engine was usually in a vehicle that was subject to heavy loads and torque demands & highly subjected to over/heat. I checked around for price quotes prior to rebuild and found them all over the place some over $5,000. ** $2,600 was more than I really wanted to pay but ended up having to bite the bullet. **
