If you are actually pulling the cylinder head off the engine, you must first remove the engine from the chassis.
So exhaust, carbs, electrical connections, chain off, shifter off, oil drained, coolant drained (and I would go as far as pouring through a gallon or more of distilled water to clean out most the glycol- because it will still be a mess after draining)
woohoo we are having fun now
Stupid people say stupid things on the internet, so be wary of who those people are. If you solicit advice on the internet, just keep in mind 99% of what you'll receive is not based on fact or science-and likely atleast 95% of it is based on bullshit and bravado regurgitated from some other schlub who also did not experience any of what they claim and are also full of shit. If you don't like my bluntness- too bad. I am not here to please you, so move along, your approval is not desired nor is it needed. So before opening your pie hole and adding more stupidity, perhaps sit back, listen, absorb and learn something. You know that saying, it is better to remain silent and thought a fool than to open your mouth and remove all doubt!
