Question Heads being resurfaced. Pull cams?

I'm taking my SOHC heads to be resurfaced tomorrow (pre head gasket) and I forgot to ask the guy if I need to remove the cams or the valve covers. Anyone know if thats needed?

If it were me I would even if it was not necessary just to keep crap from getting in there. If you do make sure you mark which cam goes where and each bearing cap and bearing go back on where it came off from.

Heads are usually BARE when resurfaced.

Took em in this morning. He said they usually have a bare head but keeping the cams and valves in there is nothing out of the ordinary. He said if I wanted a wash though, that the sensors and any electrical on the heads would have to be removed first.

If not getting a post resurface wash, take em home and spray out everything with an air compressor and some type of cleaner.

Surfacing makes a mess, there will be chips in every nook and crevice, make sure to clean it really well.
