I took my head to a highly recommended machinist to make it true again, and when I got it back it had been painted all inside and out except for the bottom of the head (which was machined). Is this common? In the camshaft seats the paint is being rubbed off, and was wondering why it was painted in the first place? I can tell it is the baked-on kind of silver paint, but it still would never stand up to the abrasion of a rotating camshaft.

Re: machined and PAINTED cylinder head?! (Hapa TT)

If I rub hard, I can rub off small flakes with my finger where the paint is already coming off; yes it is clearly paint.
