    Can you post a pic or 3 of it from different angles?
    Maybe we can see something.

    Count of head bolts removed?
    Intake, exhaust, crossover all removed?
    Front brackets removed?
    Grounding straps?
    Passanger side head and automatic tranny dipstick?

    Ive had some old heads that were a bear to pop off, but better to get some new set of eyes on it before chancing breaking something.
