From what I learned in my other pos I guess I need to replace the head gaskets. What do I need to get besides the head and valve cover gaskets? Do I need any other gaskets or hardware?
Sorry to ask so many questions but I have no mechanical ability and just want to make sure I have eveything I need to have a
mechanic friend do the work. Where would I find the torque specs and sequence for putting it back together? Thanks in advance for any help or tips.

I finally have my dream car and got to drive it a whole 15 miles before a disaster.

Yes there are other gaskets and hardware you will need. You will need new head bolts which I would go with ARP, you will need head gaskets, a lower intake manifold gasket kit, and a few other little things that your mechanic should have.

Definitely get the head bolts. I can tell you from experience that yes they will break. And in my case break off in the block requiring a new block.
