comment Tools needed for smooth Subaru head gasket job
Craftsman and Gearwrench now both have versions with an open-ended ratchet on one end. No idea if it really works.

Yeah, I really think I should get some of those. Do yours have the open end ratchet too or just the flat socket type?

Other head came out easily too. Posted an answer with info on additional tools I used or would have liked.

comment What to do with damaged alignment dowels in block?
It came out easily with vise grips and some gentle turning back and forth. Got the heads machined and almost ready to put it back together. :-)

comment What to do with damaged alignment dowels in block?
Thanks. I just got back from the Subaru dealership with a replacement part (for free, even) and the technician who helped me there basically confirmed what you said, and also that the new part can be hammered in with a block of wood. As for the head, I don't think it's damaged from the pin, but I suspect it may be a bit warped and I'm going to get it checked out and possibly machined.
