Model T Ford Forum: Forum 2017: Removing T engine head
Top of pagePrevious messageNext messageBottom of page Link to this message  By John Annaian on Tuesday, September 19, 2017 - 05:19 pm:

Hi all,

As you know, I've got a seized T engine is like to get to turn over and inspect.

I removed all the head bolts, luckily without breaking any.

How should I remove the head? Just get a screwdriver and pry it off? The gasket is smooshed around the edges since it is the original so I'm guessing that's going to make it harder to get off.

Thanks!

Never mind, just tried a screw driver and it came right off...

Sorry! First time doing this and was worried of breaking it.

The first times are the hardest aren't they?
Oof. I could tell stories about first times with engines... :-)
Welcome!

Also check the valves. Sometimes they corrode up and prevent the cam from turning.
