Re: 4.7L head removal help
hopefully you left all the timing chains on as iirc there is only holes in the bank1 cylinder head for a spanner wrench, then for the bank 2 you just hold bank 1 to loosen... doesnt work when there are no chains holding everything together. You should be able to find an adjustable spanner wrench, something with one solid arm that goes up to the handle from the pin then a separate arm that pivots mounted to the solid arm this way you dont need an exact distance between the pins. ultimately this would be my suggestion as the only other suggestion would be to grab the cam (away from the lobes) with some good adjustable pliers or something like a monkey wrench, make sure to stay away from the lobes if you attempt this and attempt at your own risk! ive never had a problem grabbing a cam BUT i also dont break the cam gear bolt loose while holding it there either.
