    Oh dear, I wish you well lol. I did a head gasket on a 2nd Generation Granada diesel once on my mates drive. Even after careful labelling of bits etc when finished we still had loads of nuts n bolts left over ! It did however start but we took it straight down Charlton auctions as also snapped a few streach bolts lol.

    Yes my mate was too tight to buy about 16 new bolts at about £5 each !

    I'd advise getting the WSM and following that. It's pretty big job, subframe will need to come off and and you need decent amount of clearance under the car.

    as said, you'll ned a fair amount of clearance underneath, but if those "portable ramps" are the big things that I've seen, that lift the whole car up, then should be ok
