Ya was just wondering, I've stripped my head down and I wanna skim it one night this week, but dunno if im gonna be able to do it with our skimmer at work cuz we have quite a shallow clamp and I think the tubes are gonna get in the way.
Ive googled and searched on D-Series about it but cant come up with much, Im assuming theyre pressed in and the answers no but worth a question to the family. Rep for replies - dont flame me if this is a silly question lol

What type of shop do you have access to? At one shop i used to work at we had a limited number of precision blocks etc. We did have two kurt vices that I would block on top of quite often when I had clearance problems.
I had to do a lot of improvisational work there. I think that shop was where I learned the most. Made me think outside the box a lot.


Even if head surface is warped you should be able to tell with a indicator if you've got in on there nice and level! Do be carefull though, and remember that you can flex shit when clamping if you don't have proper support etc.
