SOURCE: blown head gasket
I would change both, as well as use new head bolts. Make sure your heads are not warped or cracked, especially the one that is leaking. There may not be any need to change the head if it is not cracked. These are prone to blowing a gasket especially after 150K miles or so. It will not cost a huge additional amount to change both head gaskets since the engine will have to be disassembled down to the heads anyway. Hope this helps you, Rick

Get a Chilton's book on the car. It will take you thru the whole job, and give you the torque specs for putting it back together. You will need a torque wrench, foot pounds, and a good socket set.

On some 4.3 engines, when the timing marks line up, the #4 cylinder is the TDC. So you may have to point your distributor to #4. And look at your cap, sometimes, where the #4 wire joins the cap, the wire "inside" the cap may run to the other side of the cap, so look inside to see exactly where your rotor should be pointing.

try to check, is it enough space to get the head bolt out without removing the cam? if ok, just follow your opinion. haynes maybe just told you to minimize the risk to broke the distributor.

It is a tight fit, but it can be removed if you remove the 'shelf' above the engine that houses the wiper assemply, and I have seen people lower the engine by unbolting the cradle-put a block of wood between the jack and the engine/transaxle, and unbolt the cradle bolts, lower it so you have enough clearance to pull it out (works on both 3.5 and 4.0 motors, it really helps to have 2 people to do this-also, if you haven't don it yet.scribe the bolts and slots on the hood bolts and remove the hood, make your life much more enjoyable.
