id like to know the same thing thinking about this kit for the foreman as well tell me how ya like it after ya get it in
first thing is you need to get a manual or borrow one, this will tell you step by step on tear down and reinstallation.

I would assume the paperwork with the kit should have all the spec. needed. Any reputable Machinist should know what needs to be done, if not just call HL.

No special tools are needed to take the topend loose. You will need to remove the 2 head bolts from the jug before going to the shop, most places will charge to take out and reinstall them.

A torque wrench will be needed to put everything back together. Just remember that you are working with alum. not steel, so be carefull.
