Thanks, I don"t see that this would be any different than the ones you did. They wouldn"t be taking very much off. The worst is taking the stud bolts out. Is there any chance of cracking the head if I heated it to loosen the bolts up?

Planing the head and manifold surfaces is standard practice any time the gasket is renewed. Cant even imagine what you feel wouldnt line up. As far as the studs, heat the STUD red hot & cool it with canning (parraffin)wax from the grocery store. Melt it in untill it no longer melts. Youll get a small fire, & a bit messy. Then WALK AWAY until everything is ROOM TEMPERATURE -entirely cold. If it wont come out now, nothing will get it out , youll have to drill it out. I ha e never seen this method fail. Good luck

I must say the wax trick worked. I had 2 bolts that I had a lot of pressure on and wouldn"t budge. Put some wax on as you said and out they came. THANKS many times.

I'd let the machine shop guy remove the studs, any problems, he is more likely to solve them quickly. My $02

Heating them works however they might only move a little at first. Don't rush them work them back and forth they should move a little more each time.
