If I am going to pull that head I might as well drop the engine so it'll be
easier work.  I guess I am still in shock and was hoping that there is an
easy explanation as to why I could be reading zero PSI on cylinder 2 or
that there was something to "check" before I dropped the engine to pull the
head.  I do not think that there is.

I only have 1000 miles on the engine and taking it back to the engine
builder is not an option.
