On the scale of engine repairs - changing a head gasket is a precise job.
A torque wrench is required to put the right amount of tension to the bolts when refitting the head. Sometimes the cylinder head won't come of that easily - an engine hoist is a big help to get the head of evenly at every side.
Then removing the old gasket can take sometime since it can't be scraped of by force. When rebolting the head - the order in which bolts are fixed is very important - you need the bolt pattern from a service manual.
The rest of the job is rather straight forward - best to do inside.
This should be the same as a car, jack the front of the car up put stands under, remove front wheels, remove bottom cover (about 7 screws), Remove powersteering pump pully 3 bolts, remove and refit new belt and P/S pully, you might get away with not having to adjust alt but if you have to youll need a 13mm spanner to undo the locking bolt then pull the alt tight (its really tight u might need a bar), once all done replace in reverse order.
