Default B18b resurfaceing

Hello everyone I have a b18b that had a blown headgasket, I bought another straight head. Now my question is can I send my block to a machine shop to be resurfaced, with all of the internals or do I have to disassemble it?
thanks any feed back would be great!!

It must be disassembled first. Either by you or the machine shop before they can deck the block.

If it was overheated severely enough to warp the block you need to overhaul the entire bottom end. The cylinders will be out of round and the bearings have probably been overheated and need replaced. Best Of luck
