    I scratched my head awhile with this stuck head. Spinning the motor on the starter didn't budge it, so I came up with this simple tool and it worked a treat.
    The lifting hooks come with a nifty threaded adapter for the spark plug holes. Insert that in the spark plug hole. Find a bolt that threads in and make up this 5" long support out of L-iron.

    some folks just put some pieces of rope down the spark plug holes and then turn it over
