I am doing a rebuild on my 140 H3 K321. I am wanting to have the head trued up, shaved, ever how you want to look at it. What is the most I can have shaved off and still be safe? Thanks Scott

The head gasket is leaking at the front so I thought I would address that problem and maybe help the power a little to boot.....

Try checking Brian Millers kohler site for advice on milling heads. I wouldn't do it on an older engine but on a fresh rebuild it may give you some extra ponies!

On the head I did, I started with 0.015" of warp in it. I had it flattened and back on in a couple hours.
Be sure to check the block too!

According to Brian Miller, you can go .030" To play safe youy can put some modeling clay in the valve pockets, put the head on, roll the engine over, the measure how much room you have to play with.
