Re: Help please, Cylinder Head Removal
It would have to be a weenie impact gun that wouldn't loosen head bolts.
No need to remove the rockers - just loosen them enough so that you can remove the pushrods, plus they make a nice handle to lift the heads off of the block with.
I use a chunk of 2x4 and drill 8 holes in it, mark it front & rear and remove the pushrods in order and stick them in the 2x4 exactly as I removed them.
If the head won't budge count the number of bolts you've removed. SBC has 17 per head - not sure on BBC. If they're all out and it won't budge I give it a few sharp whacks with a big rubber mallet.
You shouldn't have any problem lifting the aluminum heads yourself. Cast iron BBC heads are hea-vy...
