Wondering if anybody else has had similar problems the head will not come off my 22r. We can lift the engine by the head and it will not come off or move at all. Anybody got any ideas that will not damage anything. And yes all bolts are removed though one head bolt did shear off.

Thanks for any advice i can get

Check all bolts and connections again

Do NOT pry on it--you will gouge your head and block surface. If anything, use a very thin putty knife to try and break the seal, but dont pry.

there is a bolt in the front of the head right in front of where the timing chain gear mounts. Check that one, also make sure all of the "stuff" (header, intake manifold vacuum lines) are disconnected

there are some hoses that run under the intake that also need to be unhooked....i'm a little sketchy on the details, its been a while since i pulled the head on mine.

i don't know if this is bad for anything but once i bolted my bare intake back on and used it for a handle to peel the head off.

i was getting mad and crazy if it didn't come off then i was gonna use my hy-lift, but it came off and i didn't have to get midevil on it.

If your bolt broke off above the head surface it is because it is corroded to the head
I had this same problem and actually jacked up the whole front end of the truck from the head . I ended up filling the bolt hole with wd40 and used a punch to smack the broken bolt . walla off the head came off . DO NOT PRY THE HEAD >>> YOU WILL KICK YOUR OWN ASS when it does not seal or it breaks

It was the corrosion of the bolts holding the head on unfortunatly the wd40 soaking it didnt work so i had to heat it with a torch and then pry on it to get it to move. Not the best way but it appears so far that surfacing the head slightly will take out the small gouges made.
