Before I tear something up...
I seem to have all the intake nuts off to pull the head but it won't
budge. It will barely separate on the timimg belt end with a
screwdriver. The book says there are 8 attach points (studs with
screws) and I got to all of them. Before I try to force an aluminum
part into an unusable condition I would like some input on if the
gasket between the head and intake could cause that good of a seal.
