Can't get the head studs out.
As it says. They won't even budge. Is there a trick or just twist and hope they don't snap? Help please. I need to get it off tonight so I can get the head in to the shop.

It's off. woohoo. Looks like crap under there too. Take it to the shop and see what they say now.

Well, now I wish I wouldn't have gotten the studs out. Took it to the shop and found out that it's warped 5/1000's on top and 9/1000's on the bottom. I can have it straightened or rebuilt. If they just do the straightening then I can never have is resurfaced so I think the rebuild is the way to go. What ya think?

can you hve then retap it for larger headstuds?

It's not the studs that are the issue. It's the entire head. The top and bottom surfaces are warped. I called a couple shops and it will cost the same to rebuild it as it will to buy another one. That is if anyone can find another one.
