I have an 86 200sx fourtrax that smokes like a chimney and can't get the cylinder to come off the bottom end. I removed the head. The studs are still in, but shouldn't it lift up or am I missing something?
is the cam on top of the head? if so you will need to remove the timing chain as well, the studs stay with the bottom end, you may need to spray some PB blaster around the studs the steel is probably corroded inside and just stuck.
