Default Re: 98 SC-2 DOHC Cylinder Head Replacement

Thanks to everyone for the advice. I pulled the head off yesterday with no problems whatsoever because of the information you guys provided. Each time I got to a point, I remembered reading what someone said about it and I didn't make the same mistake (especially taking the timing chain cover off). I found the water pump had an excessive amount of play and it's being replaced also. The crack in the head was pretty apparent. It's right above the A/C mounting bracket and ran across the top of the head.

I did notice coolant in the cylinders sitting on top of the pistons. I checked for any obvious cracks in the block but did not see any. There was no oil in the radiator or lines when I drained it. Any comments on this? Thanks!!
