I would pull the head. Why do something twice? You are facing enough headaches. Did you deck the block and check the head for warpage?

They make a tool for changing them on the truck, BUT you need to be sure the piston in the cylinder you are working on is at top dead center.

I have a short block setting on the bench, but it should be bored out. You could run it very loose but I would just go ahead and spend the extra 500 and get it bored .040 and blueprint and blance.
