    I am glad to say that (with a little help from me and another friend, Colin) Tony succeeded in removing both heads. Initially he used a hyraulic bottle jack that I loaned him (see Dasadrew's picture of it in the tech section). Although this worked for me with a little help from a screw jack, it was no match for Tony's heads with 4 studs intact! So I advised Tony to do as DJT did and use two very large pieces of studding and steel tubes, and this finally did the trick. Of course that was not the end of it. We had to saw through a total of eight head studs before the heads cam off.

    Anyway, to the point of this post. Thanks to Tony (and DJTs inspiration), I now have added a pair of these robust screw jacks to my angle brackets, and these are now in storage, gathering dust, waiting for the next pair of stuck heads.

    So, my thoughts are turning to tool loans. Does anyone think it would be a good idea for me to make my 'head removal set' freely available for loan to any forum member to use? Before anyone comments, there would be no charge for loans. The borrower would just cover the cost of postage.

    Tried it before, seems to be no interest

          Yes, there's still hope for this world after all!

          Thanks again Brian for the loan of the pusher tool, will get the heads off to a machine shop as soon as I'm back from hols to get them pressure tested and skimmed. Fingers crossed there are no cracks or suchlike that'll need welding...

          Cheers,

            Maybe you could weld a Free post address label to it and they could be popped in a postbox...

              Quick thread resurrection as it has helped me get (at least one) head off .. the other head is stuck fast, borrowed the idea with the threaded bar in the tube idea (thanks for that), my tubes started to crumple on the ends with the pressure when trying to get the second head off, so need to get thicker tubes and hopefully will get the other head off tomorrow.

              One tool I found invaluable are these http://www.toolstation.com/shop/Auto...ver+Set/p81815 they are a minor miracle, grabs the studs brilliantly, got them all out and the ones that didn't come out sheard off, so the grip is tight, good with rounded nuts and bolts too.
