Head Removal

Hi my name is Joel and I am 15 years old. Yes, thats right 15. So my dad has his old w123 1984 300D 5cyl. Turbo Diesel, and I am fixing it all up for myself to drive it when I get my license in 2 months. It has just over 300,000 miles on it, so I am taking the head off to snoop around. I have it all ready to come off, but can anyone help me on how to keep it on time.
I also just bought a new turbocharger for it. The old one was a Roto - Master A/R 58 rating, and my new one is a Roto - Master A/R 96 rating. The new one has never been put on anything (suprisingly) and I bought it for only 130 bucks!
So if anyone can give me some advise that would be great.

Thanks, 1984benzfan
