Ha ha no I would have if I didn't spin the motor over on my engine stand and see them. So I have been working on it. And realize it is only 3 of the studs that are stuck. It has moved about a half inch. About 8 more inches to go. Thank you for all the inputJust to make sure, there are two bolts that hold the front of the head and the front cover together on the underside. You wouldn't be the first person to forget to remove them.
I am happy for you that it worked. I tried that on a badly stuck head and it broke a piece of the cylinder head. They come in many degrees of stuck. The worst ones will never come off - Rich Hanning had one of those.I once had so much difficulty getting a head off that had come up some of the way (75 TS). The only thing that worked eventually was getting a port a power (small hydraulic ram) between the head and the block and pushing it off! Using bits of wood I was able to not damage the head or block and the reassembled engine works well.
I knew that nine of the ten studs were free but the last was very stuck. If the port a power hadn't worked I was going to resort to the hack saw!I am happy for you that it worked.
