Default Need rebuilt cylinder head

Greetings and all that.FNG here-been lurking since October-learned A LOT-THANK ALL OF YOU!
I have a 99 xc v70 AWD,ABS bought at auction for 1k(167K mi). Put new front struts,timing belt and water pump, used L front axle and drive shaft-Pull & Save, oil pan that had crack,flushed trans and coolant and some other stuff.
Well it had check engine lite on-code said P1550(and ABS). After about 25K miles #3 cylinder lost compression; others 150ish.So being a mechanic on all sorts of stuff and a gear head since 12-now 69. Motorcycles,airplanes,cars,industrial equipment of all kinds I'm not afraid of replacing head-no biggie; done many 1-8 cyl gas,diesel,air what ever was needed got done.
Now who sells rebuilt heads? Saw one post and can't find it that somebody was selling them for $450 and got good reviews to boot.
P.S 2nd Volvo had 70 142S- got broad sided by big Olds dui'n 50+I'm not driving,in back seat with girl, friend driving. NONE of us got a single bruise!

try searching for recycle yards. You should also check the engine model (should be something like "B5254T" on the timing belt cover or you can use a VIN decoder to determine which engine you have and what the compatible models are.
