    From the perspective of doing this DIY, you can JUST make it work financially IF you are keeping the car. Rebuilding the original head is a mugs game, it will not last unless you can have it Hot Isostatic Pressure impregnated after the refacing. This is a micro thin coating that prevents (sort of) porous surface seal failure and so the only sensible method is to fit a new head, AMC make some good parts and there are some Chinnese copies around that seem OK. A new cam kit is also very sensible, make sure it is billet not cast. Alternatively, the sooner all light vehicle diesel is scrapped the better my lungs will be.....
    Dark was that day when Diesel conceived his grim engine that begot you, vile invention, more vicious, more criminal than the camera even, metallic monstrosity, bale and bane of our culture, chief woe of our Commonweal. How dare the Law prohibit hashish and heroin yet license your use, who inflate all weak inferior egos? Their addicts only do harm to their own lives: you poison the lungs of the innocent, your din dithers the peaceful, and on choked roads hundreds must daily die by chance-medley. Nimble technicians, surely you should hang your heads in shame. Your wit works mighty wonders, has landed men on the Moon, replaced brains by computers, and can smithy a "smart" bomb. It is a crying scandal that you cannot take the time or be bothered to build us, what sanity knows we need, an odorless and noiseless staid little electric brougham.

    Thank you for your reply Crasher. Some interesting things to consider there. What are my chances of taking the existing head off and finding that it doesn't need skimming or refacing in any way? And if so, would it be stupid to refit it?

    It MAY not be warped but the injector bores WILL be worn and to get a suitable surface finish for a new gasket it would need refacing.

    First of sorry to hear about the car
    I know this is of little help to you, But there are so many of these engines in scrapyards
    Would you not consider just replacing the whole engine with another Avf
    Most blocks are going cheap now
