Theres a few good threads on here that will help. The biggest thing to do is be CLEAN !! Take your time and lay all the parts out in the order they came off in. I took a half of a piece of plywood and made 6 big squares with a sharpie. I put everything from #1 in that square. Like the fuel line, connect tube, injector(in a ziplock bag) rockers etc. the #6 push tubes will come out but there is a rubber grommet up in the cowl that needs to be removed so the tube will have the room to miss the head. Make sure you take note as to the orientation to the injector harness wire and their color locations to each injector too. Dont forget about the fuel return line on the back of the head.

don't be Heman and try to take the head off yourself, get help or a lift. look twice before you set the head back and i like what Mike said about the plywood, lots of people throw their their head up on a metal table and never think twice.

These heads are stupid heavy. I pulled mine off by myself with no picker. Im pretty tall so that helped me get over the top of it. I still look in the driveway every now and then, looking for my balls. LOL I think they were pulled off from that trick by myself...

lol, to funny. im tall but skinny. didnt realize how big the head was till i saw another thread with the head being yanked by a puller. figured no way in heck i can do that. But I will grab a friend though. i was planning on ziplock/plastics and mark each bag for the 1-6. lotz of photos too but i think this pdf does a good job for what im trying to accomplish. Was told not to put head down as injector tips hang out by a thread.

Oh and clean area aint happening, I live out in the woodz on a dirt/gravel road. But at least i dont have traffic coming by as i live on the end of a street that gets no traffic anyways.

but i will try...............

wet some of the ground in your work area to keep the dust down if it won't create a mud hole

Get a 1-ton lift from harbor freight. A 20% coupon and it's only about $115. Get everything off the top, put some hefty straps or chain on the guides and lift it up. Yeah, the injectors stick out a little so be careful. If you put ARP studs in just put them in after you place the head on or there won't be enough room to get the head on under the cowling. Also, take a lot of before pictures of the wiring, harnesses, etc. to reference when putting everything back together.

No need to be careful with the injectors when removing the head....REMOVE THEM FIRST. I knew they stuck down a little from the bottom so i took them out first. If he sends them to get tested, then he might wanna hold off on the head pull until he hears the injectors news..

There is a bundle of wires pinned to the back of the head, on the drivers side. Make sure to pull that out or it could tear some wires. Not sure what the wires are to.

Go to this link and read the GDP install instructions. It's a pdf document so you should be able to print it off easily.
