Hi all
Success today in getting one of the heads off. The problem was a couple of the studs being badly corroded to the head and causing the head to only really move at one end. To get round this engine oil was trickled down the studs and this highlighted that the stud nearest to the exhaust of cylinder no 1 was causing us a problem. The solution was to first get the head parallel to the block and by keeping the head under tension by the rope fit a nut to the stud and tap it till I could see it had move down. The next thing to do was slacken off the nuts on the studs at the far end of the head a few turns and give the exhaust manifold a clout, this moved the head up at that end so returning to the no 1 cylinder end some more careful tapping on the stud with the nut on saw that end now go up. This was repeated till the head was off. The stud was very tight and it might be advisable to find a better way of dissolving the corrosion sticking the studs to the head as once revealed it was clear that several of the studs were corroded quite badly.

The green is most likely from the copper in the head gasket

Very impressed you've managed to get it off Jim, and shows it has been worth the effort by the looks of the contained corrosion.  Cool

I think the other head will be a bit trickier as I oiled all the studs before I left tonight and a fair few were not taking the oil down so will be dry and stuck together when I have a go at removing it. I will try the ATF and kerosene? mix as well.

For a job like that I'd go straight to ATF/acetone mix. Anything else is just wasting time.

Hi all.
At last a bit of time to sort this engine out and move it out of the way of the Appia. I made a visit to my local steel stockists and got them to cut a piece of 5mm steel the size of the head gasket for a tenner. The next bit involved clamping the gasket to the plate and marking the position of the cylinder head studs. I will then have to carefully centre punch each of these holes and drill and tap them. see pictures

House move done and I have managed to cut a path through all the debris so I can get to the engine and hopefully next week will bring some progress.
