i just took off my head, have a blown head gasket.
sent the head to get milled, straightened, and pressure tested.
before i took off the cams i oviously set it to TDC, do i need to remove all the pullies and for some reason realine somthing with the timeing chaing? i dont think i do but some kid said i need to.
also does anyone know the blot tighting order for the head bolts and do i NEED to replace the head bolts, if no one knows the order i guess i'll just use the same order as i do with all the other head gaskets i've changed, do the sides and work my way towrd the center.

I believe the conventional wisdom is that headbolts should be replaced as well. There was a big discussion over this a while back on the forums, sure you can find it with the help of the search feature.
