One more thing, I believe that it is 14mm. It takes some force to break them lose but once you do it's not to bad. They take forever to back them all the way out though! I just did it about a week ago

Eric,

Were you able to get all the head bolts out without pulling the motor? I couldnt, the bolts were JUST a llittle bit too long.

I finally got all of the motor and tranny mounts out of the car and was able to lift the engine enough and have it move forward so I could get the head off. otherwaise I would not have been able to get the head off The driver comes out but not the passenger

Honestly, I don't think I'd ever even try pulling the heads without fully pulling the motor, or at least lifting it a good 6-8" (more then the coolant hose can handle - might as well pull it and make life easy).

It was actually extremely easy. but, i do already have all the wires and hoses and accesories, etc. off the engine so maybe that made it easier

You have too to get the torqued properly. THe bolts are made to stretch a little so never reuse head bolts!

Have I had to, yes. Have I had to on a Subaru aluminum block, no. Why would one be messed up? if the factory did that I would be extremely upset. Especially on a head bolt! THose need to be pretty darn perfect. I'm not sure of the torque specs or patern on our engines. sorry

There is also an allen wrench looking nut right in the middle of the head. What is that about?

OK, those are kind of weird. There are 6 of those. I believe that those are T-35's. They connect the top part of the head to the bottom. It's hard to explain. don't worry about those until you get the head off. you don't need to take those out to get the head off.

did you have to replace the cam journals and seals when you took off the camshaft to get the head off?

You don;t have to take the cam out to get the head off. All you need to do is take the valve cover off and then remove the 6 bolts that hold the head on.

Also, the cam journal is ground into the cam, you can;t replace it. You shouldn;t have to replace any seals either.
