Hereís a picture of removal lifting.The location of the brackets were changed for the install to avoid the potential to disrupt the clamp load / seal of the head gasket when removing the brackets from the head bolts.

So instead of trying to revive the tired original engine I bought another 288 for less than I would have paid for new pistons and rings. Pre-purchase of the new to me engine I was allowed to remove the head the cylinders are beautiful, original pistons (std stamp), and water jacket is very clean

It does have some leak down from the exhaust so I set out to learn how to resurface the seats. I practiced on the tired engine today, unfortunately due to covid-19 weíve been ordered to stay at home for all nonessentialís so I had to come up with some alternatives for Prussian blue pencil which I canít seem to find - here are my results.
