how do i get heads/cam off oil tubes???

Sorry for the dumb question, but i'm removing the cam housing and heads as a single unit, but the dang oil return tubes are holding on like crazy so I can't slide the heads off.

Does everyone just crush and remove these even when rebuilding, or is there a trick / worth it to saving them? Could I torch them to melt/loosen the o-rings?

(964 3.6L)

Thanks!!!

Just use leverage to force them off..

Do not hit them with anything!

Kind regards

Gently tapping on the cam housing with a soft rubber face mallett will work also. Work around the perimeter....

Cheers

Set of 4 new ones are available for well under $50 from our sponsor. I crushed mine with a pair of pliers and wiggled them loose.

I was able to gently pry them off while someone else pulled on them with their hands. Thanks a lot for all the suggestions! I'm also happy to report that I can still see all the cross-hatching in the cylinders (yay).
