Not if you have the right tools but it's definitely not a do-it-yourselfer job. Even with the heads off the engine you'll need a special valve spring compressor to reach in on those heads. You're better off removing the heads yourself if you want to attempt it but then take them to an engine machine shop to have the seals replaced and to have the heads checked for flatness.
