No, there were a few tiny nicks in the top of the pistons where you could see the tapping of the valves on the exhaust side but nothing serious enough to denote repairing more...

I was able to find a good low mileage used head on craigslist and cleaned it up and installed it and put all new idlers, tensioners, belts, waterpump, and a full gasket kit for everything and bolted it all back together. and she roared to life...

its been 3 days now seems to run real smooth and no problems as of yet.
