So little time.....
Got the engine out of my 4514 for a timing belt, head check, and head gasket repair. What a pain, but I can see how it will go twice as fast if I have to do it again. Anyway, in order to get the head off, do I have to take the cam pulley off? It looks like the backing plate behind the water pump, cam pulley, etc, blocks the head from just lifting off. I had to run to work and didn't get a chance to get a good look at it, but it seems that's the case. Am I wrong or do I have to take it off? If I do, what technique did you guys use to get them off? Looks a little trickier to remove than just a regular flywheel.
