Why are there 49 posts (oops...50 now) about simply pulling the heads? Reger, you are pop-u-lar.


j/k -- its an easy job once you get down to it. There's just so much to do BEFORE you get to that step. Good luck.

Never a Duramax. But I've rebuilt plenty of John Deere engines without a stand. Go get a couple sheets of 5/8" or 3/4" plywood.

Use one to roll the engine around on on the floor. Use the other on a couple of saw horses for a bench to lay everything out on. It's primitive and certainly not ideal but it will work.
