And to pull the dowel pins without  damage (except possibly to the dowel pins); find a drill bit that you can just fit the shank into them, put it inside the dowel while you grip them with pliers. This keeps from collapsing the pin and gouging the inside of the case/jugs/head.

I find that a large EZ out will usually get them out.  Sometimes they need warming a to help break teh grip and in rare cases they need to be dragged out kicking and screaming with a pair of vice grips

I'm taking the head to a mechanic friend this eve who's going to school me in valve spring removal.  We'll attack the dowel at the same time, get that sucker out one way or another.

Put a socket over the valve spring and whack it with a hammer.  8)

NO idea what the hell that means but any sentence that ends with a whop pow deserves attention.

Lol, when you use the hammer method to get the valve spring keepers off, they may or may not go flying across the shop.

Ha, the box may be 4' it's long. I didn't go to Maine. Jill did and she forgot to grab the samples. will be back over again soon though.

if I were you I'd order one of these, you'll need it to put the springs back in. can't use the hammer method for that sadly.

I grabbed that one for the virago. works fine. half the price of the best deal I could find on CAD side of the interwebs.

$15?  At that price they're making me buy it.  Thanks for the link mate - I'll see how far I can get with my buddies set up, pretty sure he has everything I'll need.  But that kit won't break the bank and would be a good addition to my shop.  No worries on the samples, it's all good.
