How to Remove the Head on MD2B

I've got all the nuts and bolts loose but there is a oil supply pipe that is keeping me from lifting the head off the cylinder block. It's #17 on the following diagram : Volvo Penta Exploded view / schematic Lubricating System: A MD2B - MarinePartsEurope.com

The pipe goes down through the head, through the cylinder block and does not have reasonable access to remove.

Has anybody done this ? Do the studs need to be removed so the head can be rotated without lifting. ?

Re: How to remove the head on MD2B

I have done this at sea to lap in the valves just because I had lots of time. Did not have unusual tools. This was long ago but it looks like a simple bayonet bolt on top and you should be able to remove it and life the head. You may need to sand the copper washers on a piece of glass with fine paper if scored. These heads came off easily one at a time. Springs are prone to break.

A guy over on oldmarineengine.com said to bend the pipe and that worked. Here is a picture :
