Default Head gasket replacement 200 hpdi

Can you pull the heads off on a 200 hpdi without pulling the powerhead? Doesn’t look like I can get to the bottom bolts with lower cowling in the way.

Answered my question, yes you can remove heads without pulling power head. Head is off, confirmation that gasket was leaking, cylinders and piston looks great. Going to send injectors out while I have them off.

They looked surprisingly good barely corroded, not sure if I really need to replace them, worried that the screw might break off if I did.

Yeah that would be a problem, think I'll do it this winter just to see.

This is after a test run with new head gasket, warped head or crack somewhere in water passage in block?

i did a leak down and it sounded like air was escaping around head.

Would I see oily deposits in water passage around cylinder head? It looked dry

Assuming I detected a degree of sarcasm there.

Yep and the sealing surfaces on the head looks kinda rough.
