Part One
Nice header removal detail. They were really seized in place.  Also note how over tightened all the bolts are.

Part 2
Outside head bolts were over tightened as well. Propably becasue someone tried to fix the head gasket leak by tightening them.

Part 3

Part 4
(cool valve removal technique)

Part 5
removing the carbon deposits and grinding the valves

Part 6
Proper sequence for tightening the head (note the reference to torque wrench)
