A couple quick ones off the top of my head beside having you pick up a haynes manual. Drain the oil, leave the drainplug out when doing the headgasket. That will allow any antifreeze to just exit out the hole rather than sit there and burn up your bearings. Purchase new head bolts, don't skimp. Use copper gasket spray on the new gaskets-2 coats. Spray, let dry, re- apply and let it get tacky. Make sure your piston #1 is at TDC on the compression stroke. This will make it easier once you have to torque down the rockers. Check lifters for cracks on the rollers. Have your heads shaved so they are square.......

take your time and have plenty of space to keep removed parts safe and out of the way. It took me about 8 hrs, but i was not rushing nor working on it all the time.
