Angry 74 280C Head Stuck

I am taking the head off to replace a blown head gasket (between #5 and #6). No comments on my sanity. Everything removed per the manual and I just removed the 14 head bolts but the head won't budge.
Any suggestions on where to apply force?
Thanks in advance, Ed

Use force to remove yourself from the engine until you remove the front cam cover bolts.Found down inside the cam chain box they hide trapping the unwary who go on to destroy a head by trying to lever it off.
