    I need a thread repair due to galding on the alloy exhaust port. R-75/6 head. I am in NE Ohio, anyone know who can fix me up?

    Thanks, Bruce

    You won't find any better than Paul Sturges

    His repairs come out indistinguishable from new, unlike some others.

    Beware of the ones that cut off the old stub and weld on a new one - not a good repair, and sometimes falls off. They often don't line up well internally either.
