pokesquid - What technical knowledge and tools do you have available?
I've just read through the WIS, and it's quite daunting... Before you even get to the engine proper, you have to remove the complete exhaust system, the inlet manifold, and drain the coolant.
You also need to have documentation available about torque values, c/h bolt lengths, c/h bolt untightening/tightening sequence diagram. etc. A hoist is also needed to lift the head clear.
If you fail to do any of the many steps correctly, you will have to tear the engine apart again.....
