That is a pretty small one. We've got 2 at work, 1 being pretty small and all manual, and the other can be run on full auto and if I remember right, the table is something like 12" x 18" or 20". Still a little small for an engine head.
We have 1 machine in the shop that is very accurate and straight. The boss had the guy on that machine dust the top of his 5.9 cummins (putting an honest 1000 HP to the wheels) and cut in some grooves around each cylinder for sealing the head to the block.
Not really much to using a surface grinder, just use a diamond tipped wheel dresser on the wheel to make sure it's true. Take small cuts and keep it moving. Probably not a big enough wheel or critical enough stuff being done with it to worry much about balancing the wheels.
