Cheers

Hey just pull the top pulley off, and tap it off with a soft hammer if you can't get it off with your bare hands. Don't have to worry too much about marking things if your just using it for parts.

Same thing with the head, hit it with a soft hammer to break the gasket. Or if you don't have a soft hammer a hard hammer with the piece of wood or piece of alloy (or a softer metal).
