once you take the head off it needs to be straightened , surface ground and then the valves need to be re-seated and the guides need to be checked and honed. After all this thye cam tunnels also nee to be check and if they are not straight they have to tunnel bored. All this can cost up to $800 plus $150 for gaskets $30 for new bolts and then labour so 1000.00 is a good price.

you will find two bright links on the chain that correspond to the dots on the cam shaft and the key ways on both cams should line up with the top of the head facing back towards the firewall IE parallel with the top surface of the head ( where the tappet cover bolts on), with the crank on TDC (top dead center)

Most head gaskets are straight forward. If you can replace one on a front wheel drive Ford you can replace about any front wheel drive head gasket. The only difference would be where the bolts are to remove the intake and exhaust. After that everything else is about the same. The best advice i can give is take time to read a manual like Haynes. They have manuals for just about every vehicle on the market.
