    Hi.
    I have removed several Commandos head with engine in place and not always was so easy.
    This is the first time i need to remove the Atlas head with the engine in place into the frame.
    Is it more easy with Atlas than Commando?
    Thank you.

    Head easily removes with engine in frame.

    Give yourself some extra space by removing stud that secures the intake rocker cover.

    Hi.
    Done and replaced because the front left cylinder stud lost the head!.
    Found a head cylinder copper gasket replaced with a flammed one.
    More space than Commando to work, more easy.
