Head gasket? pull intake and manifold?

I am gonna do a head gasket on my 4.2,
Do You guys disconnect the exhaust at the tail pipe and pull the whole thing as a unit? So i can do the exaust and intake gasket on the bench? or hell i guess if i do that i do not have to do them at all?

What is you guys opinion?

I have help lifting it in and out not a big deal?

I pull em. with the manifolds attached. Easier but heavy. I use a cherry picker to lift the head off. If you dont have one find a buddy or two.

Even with help it's a huge pain for just the head. I usually remove them and take the head to a machine shop for a valve job.

If you don't take em off you'll likely bend them. But thay come of super easy, maybe 8 min. if your slow.

Well i did the head gasket,, i see why it was a dumb question about the push rods.

They are coming out either way,,

Ha i pulled them before,, thank goodness

Would have been dunb not to

But with two guys leaving the manifolds on and doi g them out on the bench was great. Even better than pulling the fender. But it does take 2 guys.
