The absolute easiest way I have found is to full the head.  Just 
disconnect the exhaust flange from the manifold.  Pull head with intake 
and exhaust manifolds attached.  then remove the exhaust manifold and 
have it resurfaced.  I have successfully managed to remove manifolds with 
the head still on the block,  but the time it took was considerably more 
than it takes me to r+r a head.
