Hi all
 My mate Terry is a nuisance. He wanted to borrow my engine crane to repot a monkey puzzle tree so I invited him over to see what was involved in assembling and using the engine crane. Next thing I knew there was a 2.5 litre V6 engine sat on a little stool. Terry is now wondering if the engine crane (disassembled ) will fit in his girlfriend's car.

The engine was known to have problems with the heads being stuck. The method i tried was to suspend the engine from the exhaust manifold and the waterways of the head on the inlet side. With the head under tension some judicious clouts with a rubber mallet got the head to move about 3mm. I will need to change the fixing points on the head as it appears to be stuck in one corner.

Hi all
Had a bit of time yesterday so tried a new method on the second head using a rocker mount (see picture) The engine and stand are suspended so all of the weight is pulling on the head. I put some engine oil down the studs and will leave it to ferment for a couple of days and see how it is looking after a couple of wallops with the rubber mallet. The other head will come up about 5mm now but only at one end so I will try method B if it proves to be successful. Failing this I think a lifting plate will work as it can be bolted across all the rocker mounts.

Hi all
Tried to fit a spare battery to see what electrics were on the fritz or not but none of my spare batteries (three of them) would fit. Has anyone recently replaced a battery in a coupe and do they have the make and model? They are all too deep and will not drop down onto the battery ledge.

Thanks for the battery info will track one down...Had another look at the cylinder heads and I think a bit more progress has been made on the passenger side head as the pictures show...I thought is was going to come off but it seems to be stuck again but all four corners are off the block now. The head that was suspended is well stuck so we will give it a couple of days more.

Hi all
Terry insisted we had another go today so we re-hung the cylinder head from the rocker shafts and managed to loosen all four corners see pic

When you look at some of the engineering and machining on this engine you can see where all the money was going.

Oops wrong picture...the feeler gauge is 25 thou and WD40 and engine oil were sprayed down the end of the studs with only one not allowing the lubricant to go into the stud holes in the head
