cyl. head R&R

Just acquired a '95 SI, w/ H23a non Vtec. Broken timing belt, bent valves. Shop manual says cyl. head can come off without pulling the engine. As I get into the job, it looks like it might be easier with the engine out. Any suggestions?

Re: cyl. head R&R

It can be done. Easier with the intake and exhaust manifolds, and even the hood, off. But if you have bent valves, you're likely to have damaged pistons as well so if you have the means, you may want to consider pulling the whole motor anyway..

Re: cyl. head R&R

Thanks for the input. I think pulling the engine is my best option. It will give me the opportunity to clean up the engine bay as well. Car was a daily driver w/180,000 and looks it.
