    I think I will do that, the runner that has the 2 big holes has to be thin, I poked those with a thin pick. Thanks for the suggestion! What would happen if you were to put the epoxy in the runner, and on the outside of the runner where the pushrod is? With no brass sleeve?

    Cool! I also have a set of cracked ones in the basement I forgot about, I could get a pic of those too. I was saying I wish I had a pic of stock intake runners to show Artie how big the pinch was on magnum heads, to show why I was opening them up so much.

    I see why you would use a brass sleeve. I cut a peice in half, clamped it down, tapped it into shape with a blunt punch, and epoxied it in. So far, so good!

      You are in luck! I just finished smoothing out the epoxy, I spent at least an hour with brake cleaner, small wire brushes, toothbrushes, purple clean, sandpaper, etc making sure I got the surface clean. I am just cleaning and inspecting the head, valves, etc, hope to have it all together this afternoon. I will snap some pics here in a bit of one of the untouched heads inthe basement, and some of the head with the epoxy. I would like to experiment someday with tubes, but these are for a friend, so I didn't want to go too overboard. Well, I guess I already did haha, but I wanted to use as little epoxy as possible.

      Here is are some stock intake ports. I was just looking at the above pics, and I noticed how wavy the bottom of the port entrance is. I was showing my son how the dremel works (I used it with some sanding rolls to smooth the epoxy, which is perfectly level even though the pic doesn't look like it. Friggin pictures are bringin me down...) and I should have been watching a little more closely.
