Is it a pain in the ass on a 90 2.3?

1. Take the head off
2. Install gasket
3. Re-install head

Awesome, I figured it wouldn't be too bad.
but I'm sure some of you know how some cars are just ridiculous.

2.3 is probably the easiest engine to work on/get to.

Hardest part is going to be lining up the marks for the timing chain. Even that is stupid easy.

I really hate messing with timing.
I guess I'll see what I can do Thursday.

Well, this would be easier if I had all the tools I needed.
I don't have the right socket for the head bolts, and an adapter to go from 1/2" drive to 3/8" for my torque wrench.
Damnit..

Both are cheap and easy to get at sears.

My wife has my explorer and don't get off work until midnight.

I'v got it all back together, and I'm getting no fuel and no spark.
I checked every single electrical connection I can think of, and I'm stumped.
