the best advice to give you is to go out and buy a chilton or haynes manual. You'll be glad you did. They're pretty straight forward and exact on how to do it. Hopefully your heads not warped :) good luck

To check for a blown head gasket you can do a compression test and a cylinder leakdown test these can verify a problem in the engine or head. Also make sure that the cooling system is bled of all air and can pressurize correctly before tearing into the engine. One easy way to see if combustion gases are entering the cooling system is a distinct hydrocarbon smell from the overflow or radiator and also a stream of bubbles from the radiator filler neck and /or the overflow tank.
