M62TU Head gasket/ Timing guides journal

Does anyone have any tricks for removing the heads on a 540i.

I have everything unbolted. I twas told I could remove with the exhaust manifolds in place but I am having trouble wrestling this out because the timing rails are in the way to get the angle correct.

Any tips would be appreciated. There is not much room to remove exhaust manifold bolts.

Thanks in advance.
