    hello, I need to do head gaskets on my 1990 f250 7.3L idi. this is the first time i have torn apart one of these heads. i was wondering if you had any detailed advice and tips that i might need to know about. i work at a Volvo dealership so i have all the tools needed and equipment. i do not plan on removing the engine. we do have a cherry picker and ill use studs to put the heads on. can you let me know about any gaskets, seals, and O-rings i might need to replace that ive missed. i have the head gasket kit victor reinz hs5869, victor reinz head bolts, fel pro intake gasket kit, and a new motocraft thermostat. anything im missing that i don't know about. i read one of your posts about the IP and how to not lose the timing and ive also read something about bleeding the lifters before installation if you could maybe elaborate on that. i have a digital copy of the ford manual i plan on following but i prefer first had advice. thank you in advance
