If you're installing a head without referencing a Ford Service manual for procedure, torque sequence and specifications you are OUT OF YOUR LEAGUE! You're gonna install the head WRONG and damage either the head or the bottom end of the engine. As a minimum, your kid is gonna be stranded someplace because you made a mistake. Get an experienced mechanic to do this repair before you end up doing the job TWICE.
