Re: 66 200ci cylinder head
Thanx. i got the head out of the car. i managed to get 2 of the bolts out w/o a prob. i broke 2 off flush with the head, one i stripped the head off and the rest i broke the heads off. i was able to get the exhaust manifold off after breaking it (unintentionally). i broke the piece off from the 5th and 6th cyl's and was able to shimmy the rest over the blots after cracking the piece off from the one bolt i couldn't remove. i'm going to see what i can do with this stuff i found at the store. it's better than PB Blaster and the reason i got the two bolts out (now if i had only tried it first. . . ). i'm gonna see what that and a vise grip can do about the remaining studs and worst comes to worst, tap 'em. i knew this restore wasn't gonna be easy, but damn, i've already got a headache. oh, wait, that's from the fumes. sorry i take that back.
