You can use a file across the block... that head is going to need to be a lot cleaner than that though. You should have a machine shop check it, they have to clean the mating surface to make sure it's flat.
Or just buy a remanned head and have all new valves/springs. They don't cost that much.
Second what manbearpig said. When your head gasket blows, you really should have a machine shop check the head for cracks and flatness. When mine blew on my 2.5 a few years back, it cost me $130, plus the $250 I spent on a reman head because they found a crack in mine. It's just about worth it to spend the extra bucks on a fresh reman head rather than throw money at the machine shop to tell you that your head is bad and you need a new one anyways.
I brought the heads from the 3.1L in my Grand Am to a machine shop... it had dropped a valve seat among other things. 600 dollars to get them back to factory spec. Yea, went online and found the remanned for 150 each.

Right where the oil pressure switch connector is "link to the part below" i am leaking oil like crazy, im talking a quart every 2 days. i found the replacement connector but has anyone ever dealt with this before? Where it plugs into is a black tube like...
So, I'm getting ready to drop in the 383. But first I wanted to make some things purty. I pulled the grille and head lights, and sanded down exposed areas of radiator support. Then 2 coats of black Por-15. Looks pretty good. I also cleaned and painted the grille.
Here is my question. How do I...
Hey, it's me again. You guys have been awesome. So got the engine mount situation "situated ", lol. Wiring is next on my list. And you guys have been very helpful. Next, just want a feel for radiators. I see a few "drop ins" for around $200, on Jegs, Champion brand I think.
So, it's a 383...
