Replacing head gasket M110?

Hello guys,

I've just bought a 1978 280ce which needs the head gasket changed. I'm first gonna check the head to see if it hasn't cracked or warped and hopefully do the job myself over a few days. I am quite apt mechanically and have done this job before on other cars, but never on a Mercedes.

What would you recommend as essential tools and/or knowledge on tackling this job? I know it's not easy, but I really don't want to have someone else do it ($$$ and I want the satisfaction). The engine is a 6 cylinder gasoline.

Any particular brand of gaskets recommend? Any other information? What's the best resources other than Haynes (these are just bad)? Can I get Mercedes factory guides anywhere?

Thanks in advance!

Wrong forum? Would this be better addressed in the vintage forum? Need someone with experience, no armchair mechanics please.
