Question Tools to Repair Head Gasket

I'd appreciate a list of the special tools needed to do a head gasket repair. I plan to send the head to the machine shop, so I won't be attempting to remove the valves myself. I'll also probably have my mechanic do the timing and belt tensioning.

I searched the archives and found lots of info on the repair job, but I need the tool list for just the head repair. I've busted the end off a T-handled hex head inside the cam housing before, so I know what not to use.

TIA

AFJuvat,
Thanks. What's the secret tool for getting the bolts inside the cam housing? Is there a special hex-head drive socket that gets inside the housing?

Yep. Any major tool manufacturer has 'em: Craftsman, Snap-on, MAC, etc.

I picked up an extended set of SK hex head sockets and was glad I did. I They were around $40. I think they are like 4 or five inches long. You certainly want the best tool for that particular task.
Like AFJ said the list is pretty simple if you are not doing the belts.
The engineering is pretty impressive inside the engine. I've never seen a block like this before.
The machine shop that rebuilt my head used pictures of it for some of his promo material because he thought it looked more like a work of art.
I thought the reports in the thread about high mileage motors was pretty impressive too. The design and manufacturing sure seem good enough to accomplish it.
Good luck with the repair.
