What about with the crank out?

My "no" was assuming with the crank out. Even if there's room for the wrist pin to slide out, it'd be impossible to get the clips in, they're hard enough on a bench. It's a 1.8, do you even need to clean the block and head when changing a head gasket? $50 later you'd be done. If I had taken the exhaust and intake manifold off, and possibly taken the cams out, I could of easily put mine back on by myself. Even with all that stuff on my gf and I lowered it on easily enough. The extra stuff got in the way but if it's on an engine stand it'd be much easier.

P.S. I have an engine stand, lift, sling, and piston ring compressor for you to borrow if you'd like.

P.P.S. Congrats on 3000 posts. I'm catching up though.
