You're right - there should be 18 head bolts. It does weigh several hundred pounds - you are supposed to use a lift to get it off. Here are the directions I have:

Removal


1.Disconnect both battery ground cable(s).
2.Drain the cooling system.
3.Remove the air inlet tube, duct and inlet duct bracket and turbocharger intake tube.
4.Disconnect the charge air cooler inlet and outlet pipes.
5.Label and disconnect the intake air heater element electrical leads, Intake Air Temperature (IAT) sensor electrical connector, Manifold Absolute Temperature (MAP) sensor electrical connector and the pressure hoses.
6.Loosen the clamps. Remove the compressor manifold.
7.Remove and discard the compressor manifold O-ring seal.
8.Remove the upper radiator hose.
9.Remove the accessory drive belt.
10.Disconnect the power steering lines.
11.Disconnect the alternator electrical connections.
12.Remove the generator mounting bracket.
1 Remove the bolts.
2 Remove the mounting bracket.
13.Using the special tool, disconnect the high pressure oil hose.
14.Disconnect the injection pressure sensor electrical connector.
15.Remove the valve cover.
16.Remove the rocker arms and push rods.
17.Remove the fuel injectors.
18.Remove the fuel supply line retainer bolt.
19.Disconnect the fuel supply tube.
20.Raise the vehicle.
21.Remove the nuts and bolts from the exhaust manifold and the exhaust adapter pipe.
22.Lower the vehicle.
23.Remove the four fuel injector retaining studs.
24.Remove the glow plugs.
25.Remove the 18 cylinder head bolts.
26.Install the special tools.
1 Position the special tool on the cylinder head.
2 Install the bolts.
3 Install the special tool.
27.With an assistant, lift the cylinder head and remove it from the vehicle.
28.Clean and inspect the cylinder head mating surface.

Not really - its an angle piece of steel that bolts on the head on one side, and gives a place for the lift to attach to the other.
