How to remove a stuck engine head on my 26 DB? Suggestions?


Recommended Posts

A couple of ways of getting a stuck head off; cram a single long length of soft rope, like clothesline rope, down each cylinder spark plug hole then hand crank engine over and it sometimes pushes the head up. The other way is to actually fire the engine up with the stud nuts off. It will only fire over once and you'll lose compression but head will come loose. Try to refrain from the old screwdriver and hammer prying method. Spray plenty of solvent around each stud and brush off any and all rust around them.
