Decided to remove the head on my 85 1.9 trooper, to see why #4 has zero compression. Having a nasty time removing the intake. Have all 8 mounting nuts removed. Manifold is loose but seems to be hung up on something on the front end. Any one else have similar problem doing this job/

Well, it's too late now that you have it loosened up, but I always pull the head with the intake attached. It makes it a bit tricky to re-attach because it's way out of balance to one side but it's do-able.
If it were hanging up in the back I would say check the EGR tube.

Thanks for the response. I'm taking a few days off to regroup or is that recover from all the odd positions I found myself in in trying to work on the trooper. Also what does one do with the timing chain? Can I just remove the cam sproket and then reinstall it when putting the head back on or must I also pull the front engine cover???
