i'm lost. the head has come off the bolt, but the cylinder head head wont come off? surely the headbolt without the head, would be just like a metal stud? so the cylinderhead should come off....

Yes i agree, cylinder head should come off if the head of the bolt has snapped? Also id the head of the bolt has snapped that should relieve the tension making it quite easy to get the bolt out by welding a nut on.

this happened on mine, come to think of it, you did it! i cut through the offending bolt with a dremel, and it came free then. only top top part of the head of the bolt snaps off, leaving the wider part holding the head down

yes rob, im jinxed!!!

explain more about the dremel method, ive drilled 1 out but its taken an hour, in total 3 sheared as the last person to do the head gasket was a complete chimp and didnt remove the water from the bolt holes in the block and they were rusted in solid!

it would be easy if all of the bolt head came off but it sheared just the top 3mm
