Trying to remove the cylinder head from a spare motor I picked up and I can't seem to get the thing off. The motor hasn't run for about 7 years but I didn't think it would be this hard!
I have loosened off and removed the 14 head studs with no problem as well as the two small bolts at the front of the head which bolt to the timing cover. I have also removed all ancillaries attaching to the head including timing chain and cam sprocket.
I'm trying not to apply too much force to the head but it is not budging at all. I've even tried tapping it VERY lightly with a rubber mallet but this hasn't made any difference.
Do I need to remove any of the bolts from the cam towers or anything else? Is there something I am missing? Help!!
