    I need to learn how to spell check. Jerry since you are a pro at yanking the head, maybe you should do a short video on your site. I think it would promote more people to gain more confidence to do this process equaling in more revenue in the long run. Sorta like that hottie that works on four wheel drive trucks on T.V.

    I have had dealer mechanics drop 1 of the 2 E8 stainless bolts that are inside the cam chain area that hold the head on. You cannot retrive those back. I had to drain the oil and flip the boat upside down to get the bolt out. So use a piece of electrical tape or paper towel across the end of the socket when pushing it on the bolt so it want fall in the motor when removing it.

    I also had one show up at my shop were they put the crank locking tool in with out making sure the front piston was at perfect top dead center. if the piston is not at top dead center when inserting this tool it will still lock the crank in other positions. So when you time the cam and try to start it the chain wrecks the crank gear.
