I got a good deal on a Manfrotto 3221W tripod with the 808RC4 3-way head attached. I would like to remove the head and install a ball head. Does anyone know how to remove the head from the center post? I have removed the three set screws, but now what?

A Strap Wrench will not damage the finish of the tripod or head like the teeth of a Channellock pliers can. Be aware that in some cases there might be set screw(s) under the tripod head keeping the head locked to the tripod. If there are, the head and possiblt the tripod may be damaged if too much force is applied.
Good Luck and Enjoy your Nikons!
