DO I NEED ANY SPECIAL TOOLS ON REPLACING THE HEAD GASKETS ON MY 351W ENGINE?

1972 Mercury Montego • 80,000 miles

I know I will need a torque wrench but will I need another special tool while I get closer to my heads>?

YOU'RE GONNA NEED TO KNOW THE "SEQUENCE" AND "STEPS" IN WHICH YOU TIGHTEN THE HEAD BOLTS

YOU JUST DON'T START CRANKIN' ON 'EM!

CORRECT KNOWLEDGE IS A. SPECIAL TOOL

I WILL GET DOWN BEHIND COVER AND CONCEALMENT WHILE YOU THROW THAT OUT TOO, RAZ
