In some cases there is no need for any sort of machining at all. Removing head and base gaskets is all you will need. I would be very cautious over using someone offering to machine heads on the basis of solder, for the simple reason that if the solder test isnt done perfectly then neither will the head machining. Taking the motor to someone who knows exactly what they are doing is the only real option for this type of work, but in most cases closing the clearance by the 1mm that will be provided by removing the gaskets, will be all thats needed on roadgoing motors.
