Removing head studs, some easy, some not

I started pulling the old lower dilavar head studs the other day and thought, hay this is easy. The first 5 came out with no problem or heat. They were tight and took a bunch of torque but spun out with no drama.
The 6th (on that same side, passenger side) required about 4 minutes of propane heat and then came out fairly easy.

Then........I went to the other side (#1,2, and 3). None of em budged, I eventually got one out with 15 minutes of propane heat. I'm goingh to take it to work and use Oxy-acetalyne to get the last 5.
Question:
Why would the studs on one side come so easy and the studs on the other side come so hard? Maybe they let the loctite sit for a while during initial assembly? This engine has never been apart since it left the factory.

I just removed all my head studs this weekend and found similar results. The toughest ones showed the most loctite residue. In fact, the toughest one was the last one. With a Snap On stud removal tool and an impact gun, it still took a couple of minutes (no heat used).

I went after the remaining 5 studs today, 10 minutes later they were all out with no damage. Heat is good
Now it's all about cleanup, inspection (most of that is already done) and waiting for my latest pelican order to arrive (piston rings and a bunch of small items). No way I'm gonna be done in time for the GAF so I can take my time and do it right.

I agree with you. You need heat to break down the red Loctite.
