head not clearing firewall on removal

Postby Kent1228 » Tue Oct 06, 2020 5:41 am

I am working on 186D with blown head gasket
when lifting the head off of the studs the firewall stops the upward motion of the head before I can clear the studs

1. Can the studs be removed ?
How is this done?

Thank you for the help

Thinking you have two studs. Have you tried double nutting the studs and backing them out of the block? Put two nuts on stud, tighten them together them put the wrench on the lower nut and back the stud out.
