thats a really good deal. head gasket isnt that bad if you have basic tools (sockets, wrenches, etc. )
Might as well do the timing chain and sprockets/ guides too since you have to take all that off at the same time anyway.

it will take most of a full day. drop the exhaust side, and the intake side, and the oilpan. then all the timing chain stuff.

Its all in the haynes or chilton manuals
