    I have ported heads for years and can honestly tell you that it is much easier to ruin one than just guess and get it right, especially on an aluminum head. There are many "how to" books or technical bulletins out there for free or cheap that have enough basic information to help prevent that from happening. But nothing beats watching an experienced porter while he explains the "why" of every move. That's how I learned many years ago. Good luck.
