Alan, Not having been up close and personal with a P6B for awhile...are you 
able to remove the head with the manifold. ie: seperate the downpipe from 
the manifold? The other option is to loosen the motor mount and see if you 
can jack it up a bit as you have already suggested. All the best. Ron.>From:
