. Also have them inspect the top of the pistons for damage when he pulls the head off. If no damage found to pistons then yes it will be ok. Be sure after everything is reinstalled and you put a few miles on it to go back and have him retorgue the heads. The head bolts will stretch some and will need to be retorgued to keep you from having head gasket issues.

I don't see a problem with doing that. Just make sure it is good and clean. No fine grit in it from just sitting around. Might want to change the valve guide seals tho before you install it.
