I know from experience Oxy-Clean gets rid of oil in clothes and in plastic
radiator reservoirs.

Alright, I've got lots of oil in the coolant.  I'm pulling the head soon.
Any ideas on how to clean oil out of the cooling system?

Furthermore, I can get the manifold off, but I can't get the 6 nuts that
hold the manifold to the downpipe off.   P'Blaster isn't enough(so far).
Does this need to come off for the head gasket or can I just push the
manifold out?
