Changing head gaskets in a 5.4L 99 Expedition - Anyone have a PDF manual or tips?

Hi!

Has anyone on here changed the head-gaskets on a 2v 5.4L Triton before? This weekend we are putting new head-gaskets in a 99 Expedition with the 5.4L. (The car has been way down on power lately and although its not leaking oil, it was determined by the dealer as needing new headgaskets as it has been losing power since it overheated one day - but still drives fine and doesnt smoke aside from the power-loss)

Does anyone have a PDF of the service manual or procedure they'd be willing to share? I'd be ever so grateful. I had one but I can't find it.

I know Ford instructs you to pull the motor so you don't increase the chances of messing up the gaskets or mating-surface.....but we are going to do this with the motor in the truck. Anyone done this before? Also, do we need to find any special tools like the cam alignment tool?

Can anyone share any tips or documentation on removing the heads/changing the headgaskets? It would mean so much!

Thanks in advance!

Wow, you get around. I noticed this thread on three other sites. An insert of the brand recommended on other sites will work.

When are you just going to get it fixed?
