Is it reverse threaded or normal, cause i got the breaker bar out and hit it the normal way, counter clock wise and it didnt feel like it broke the tension or what ever its called when it happens

did you over heat the engine and need to replace teh head gasket?
if so when you over heated the engine you warped the head so the bold will be a mother. you need a good shop airgun ftw. dont use the BB incase you snap the head. but if you do snap the bolt you can remove the head then put a pipe wrench on it later with a larger bar on it

I would be VERY impressed if he could snap the head off one of those bolts. I've seen many head bolts that are pretty stuck on there and won't budge with a decent impact gun, but will come off fine with a breaker bar, even overheated engines. Those bolts are pretty beefy, I imagine you'd destroy the threads in the block long before you'd have a chance at snapping the bolt.

yea i got the head off about 2 mins after i asked hardest part is that i had to use a magnet to pull while unscrewing them. Im rebuilding the head with skunk2. and i might rebuild the bottom and suggestions for a Na b16? bottom end wise? And now it can stay in this form. :lol:
