Prepping to pull the head...

We got the cylinder 6 spark plug out. But, after breaking about 10 sockets and then rounding off the head of the EZOut that is in the cylinder 3 spark plug, I have given up hope.

How hard is it to get the head off, how much are head gaskets, anything I should know, etc etc etc.

Sincerely,
Pissed Off

Pulling a head off is not difficult, just takes time. Gaskets are cheap,just make sure you buy an upper gasket set, some good silicone sealer. You will need a good torque wrench and scraper. Make sure all pushrods go back in the correct order as they came out. should be able to do this in an afternoon.

You tried a torch, right? Heat it up real good around the plug.
