it's simple, just follow the procedure laid out in the Helms manual and you're good to go. FYI, the Chilton manual is nearly a direct 'compact' version of the Helms. a lotta the same diagrams and procedures.

if you are sending your head out make sure you remove all the sensors and anyother stuff that maybe taken off and lost.

craftsman pro is good **** y0, I use it and I'm highly impressed with it. just last weekend I was killin tools left and right, yet the craftsman peices held up! mastercraft maximum as well, good tools for the price point.

NEVER NEVER NEVER DO THIS!!! dont ever say **** like this

once headbolts have been torqued they have been stretched. They shouldnt be stretched more hense the name Torque to Yield. You will be fine reusing your old headbolts , i torque them back to spec and have never had a problem

Don't take off the intake manifold untill later. It's a ***** when it's in the car. Also, because of the head studs, you have to lift straight up which can be tricky otherwise if you lift on a slight angle it will jam and not want to come off.
Make sure you drain the coolant first...I made that mistake once....
