what did you use to test the head ? i use the back of a good hand saw and feeler gauges and try to get the thinnest guage to fit in any where across the head in lots of directions
because the back of a saw is straight you can find a warp of a few thou easy
if you need to get it skimmed ask the machine shop how much they take off will move the cam timing as you may need to go to ajustable cam wheels to put the cam timming right
