Can cylinder heads be removed with engine in frame? 2009 RSTD

Recommended Posts

From my experience doing just a valve adjustment, I would say not. It was all I could do to get valve cover off. If studs come up thru heads, you wont have enough room to go up and over.



Thanks for the info. Looks like I will be pulling the motor.

I did it on the 96, i order to replace the head gasket. One of the top rails actually unbolted and allows to lift the front head out. Watch the dang timing chain and cam alignment markers when reinstalling, did mine 3 times as the shop manual was a bit unclear. Don't know if and when the frame changed probably can looks it up online somewhere.
