I was faced with the job of removing a detachable cylinder head, so I took some photos of the process. Last evening I received a request for help on the same subject.
I have written a step by step proceedure and put six photos on my website. If you are interested, look under
Scott — Scott Technical — Removal of detachable cylinder head.
I will not claim that it was the worst case i have come across, but it worked for me and not a spot of damage on the faces.
If you have any advice or comments to improve things, please tell me.
I do realise that not everyone has a tee slotted table, but it is only necessary to find a base into which bolts can be anchored, perhaps even coach bolts in a thick plank!
As we can not put photos on this page, if anyone has photos and info that would be helpful to fellow members, I would be pleased to host the info on my site and give full credits.
The aim is to help others.
