removing the head

I've searched the site and google and I can't find any instructions for removing the head from the block.. does anyone have a link or the time to tell me how? Its on a motor thats out of the car and both manifolds are removed already.

Re: removing the head

remove valve cover, remove cams. you can now access the head bolts.

Re: removing the head

pretty much what he said, its not that hard, cam caps, cams, then head bolts, theres a sequence to unbolting the head studs so you dont warp the head.

Re: removing the head

dont forget to get the head skimmed, plus get a good head gasket

honda generally dont like when their heads come off, so be sure to do it right first time around

also, you will need a torque wrench for re-asembally, this has to be done by the book
OTHERWISE YOUR WASTING YOUR TIME

GOOD LUCK WITH IT BUD,

PS.
can i ask why your taking the head off?

Re: removing the head

I can borrow a torque wrench, so that wont be a problem. I got a new h22 the other day and Im taking the head off to get it cleaned and the valves lapped before I drop it in. anybody know the bolt removal sequence off the top of their head?

Re: removing the head

there is a sequence but its jus a crisscross theres like 10 bolts, if the block is horizontal infront of you, say u are facing the exhaust ports. start at top left then next one will be bottom right, then to bottom left then top right. also when u put them back in remember that head bolts from honda are not reusable. so u might wana get some arp head bolts as the price will be about the same as getting oem head bolts. the sequence is the same for putting the head back on. arp will come with insturctions on how their head bolts should be torqued.

Re: removing the head
