Well I got the EQ heads back, they magnafluxed them, (I wouldn't have thought that to be necessary being brand new heads) and wound up having to replace 1 valve, some of what he had to say about Mopar heads (even stock original ones) surprised me. He has had them with 30k, clean "old man's " car with egg shaped seats, he said that they can't cast a truly round seat to save their lives. 
With these particular heads he has had them with hundreds of thousands of miles on them and all carboned up or rusty from sitting that he didn't have to beat on as much as he had to pound on the valves in this set of heads to get the valves to come out. He had to dress all of the intake seats for out of round, and ream/ hone all of the guides to gain clearance so that this problem won't repeat itself, he touched up all of the seats to make sure they were still centered in relation to the guides once he had them clearance right, and hand lapped em all in. So hopefully I won't see this again.

yeah/ that's what I thought too.... they are mounted now on this CL shortblock that's going in there.... new timing chain on, longblock painted, stock (for now) rocker arms mounted, gonna get a case of oil and dump some in while on the stand, I have a hex shaft to run the oil pump with a drill, gonna hook up my remote gauge and run the oil pump and make sure the oil pressure is alright while its on the stand.....   
The longer this goes on, the more posts (in general) that I see all over online about "being expected to" take brand new heads in to a machine shop for a going over, whether they be Indy or Edelbrock or whoever, before plopping them on and bolting them down....sounds like an expected "normal" that I sure wasn't expecting to hear...  I thought that having a problem free install and not having to worry about any "issues" was a main reason for buying new heads in the 1st place...... new heads are not cheap.   In the future if I gotta go thru them anyway I think I will opt for the "bare" versions...... this has me worried about the heads we bought for the kid's Ramcharger

I wish I would of done that.  I ended up lifting the engine and trans together by the bolt holes in the front and back of the heads, it worked out great.  I contacted edelbrock about using that and they said it wouldn't be a problem.

That's what I used, a bolt hole on the pass side back head and one on the driver's side front. Couldn't quite get this one to hang right, kept adjusting chain length, which hole in heads that I hooked chain, etc. I did keep the chain short and kinda tight, as I did this one with the hood still on.
