Cab off head studs in progress

I finally got my bendpak xpr10 installed in the ranch shop, and the cab came off in about two hours. I want to use this thread to track progress and hopefully get some answers to questions I have along the way. The first one I have is, What happens if your icp sensor breaks off while you're trying to remove it?

This new shop is going to make me spoiled. It was 98 out today and the shop stayed 74 with just the ceiling fans on. I thought two hours was pretty fast, but I got lucky none of my cage nuts stripped and I have access to about any tool.

Progress for today. Tore it all down this morning, laid out the valve train and labeled it. Dropped off the heads, and luckily the shop only has one other project going on. He said he would have them done by tomorrow Also got my injectors sent out to warrens today, too bad PA is so far away.

The only roadblocks I ran into was that nobody told me that their was still that much coolant in the jacket and the base of my busted icp is still threaded into the oil rail? Any idea how to get that out?

Unfortunately they stick me in the corner, the entire shop is 140L x 90w. Its got a 2500 square foot apartment loft in it too, but my favorite part about it is the huge one peice rigid hydraulic door. I'll get some pics for you, its so much better than those roll up doors.

Back to the progress, machine shop got my heads done today and I went in to pick them up and turns out the guy machining my heads and my dad are old high school buddies, after those two BS'ed back and forth awhile I only ended up paying 175 out the door. I know he does reputable work and is experienced so I wasn't worried about him cutting corners.

The family has been in town so things have been slow but I got back to it and now I'm just waiting on injectors to get back. I also need to fix my transmission leak. I was also able to get that icp base out. I had to put the oil rail in a vice and drill the icp out some. Then I tried to use an ez out bolt extractor, didn't work. I then threaded the hole, covered a bolt with red loctice and threaded it in there. The loctice won and the sensor base came right out. Now I just have to clean out all the brass shavings
