Hi everyone. It's been a long while. I miss engaging you all!

It's time to do this head gasket. I would just like some ideas for how to pull my head off. I've pulled the valve cover, started pulling the cam journals, and pulled the chain tensioner. Just unsure where to go from here. Everything is marked at TDC. My only concern is pulling the cams off with so much tension on them. I've heard of a special tool that's needed, but then I also read that there is No special tool needed. Any help at all on the topic would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

Does anyone have a link to a Manuel with some instructions or pictures?

Welcome back David, I seem to recall you from many years ago, when I also was much more active.
Hopefully when I get back to getting my car back on the road I'll join in again a bit more.

Seems a lot of my old links are now dead and my downloads are on a harddisk somewhere!

Anyway, found this regarding valve adjustment.
