Not that tough but time consuming and a lot of things to remove. You need to buy you a Haynes repair manual or Mitchel manual at your parts store. They are written in laymen terms and easy to understand and they will give you the torque values to re-torque your head bolts once you get to that stage.

The head casket of my bighorn needs replacement. I have got the head casket set but for the engineer to fix, he needs the Repair Manual Book of the Car

Sorry to be a bit indifferent here but a proper mechanic doesnt need a repair manual ,its a engine be it petrol or diesel and as such its basic mechanics to strip and repair which any competent trained mechanic should be able to do with or without a manual .

its not hard, but you need the right tools, procedures, you need to know what you are doing. You also need to repair why the head gasket is blown. You will need the head checked out at a machine shop, it may be warped.

I have a ford 5.4 f-150 that has water in oil, I know that my truck needs heads or casket. where I can find a diagram to fix the truck.

You need to purchase a workshop manual. Follow the manual to remove the cylinder heads and then have the heads tested for cracks. If they come back clean, have them skimmed to repair the mating face, then clean and prepare the block. Fit the new gaskets and reassemble the engine. It is impossible to write each step as I am unable to see what needs to be done, so purchase the workshop manual as this makes things much easier..
