Get something like this...




I just use a 20 year old paint scraper.




On the block a small brass wire wheel in an electric drill. Won't hurt the cast block. If you do use on the head have a care the aluminum is very soft.




You shouldn't need thinners if the gasket was installed properly. It should have been put on dry.

First and foremost, block the chain tensioner from falling out before you unbolt the cam sprocket.




Keeps this part ....



from doing this...



Once out of place you have to take the front off the engine to correct.


I would disconnect the exhaust down pipe and lift the head away with the two manifold on it. Get help lifting it off. There's no need to remove them or... it's much easier with the head off the engine.


Loosening the head bolts? I just break them all loose 1/2 turn then unscrew and remove them. Putting them back on requires that they be done in a certain order and properly torqued in stages.
