Head bolts get sticky.  To get them loose, you'll really have to lean on 
a breaker bar, but once they go, they'll "pop" loose, so be careful to 
not bang into something.  On another note, you can never be certain that 
this procedure hasn't been done before.  If you're committed to this 
procedure, I'd buy a new set of bolts because breaking a headbolt is so 
much more pain than the cost of a set is worth.

My 2 cents,
