Changing my head gasket and timing belt

So Im about to change my head gasket and timing belt on my d15 sedan. Anybody got some tips I might not have heard to help me out?

Are you stuck on anything yet? The hardest part is going to be getting the crank pulley bolt off.

If you're having trouble, just take it a mechanic, get them to break it with their air tools, and then just put it back on tight enough to get you home. Then just crack it again with a break bar when you get home.

I'm not sure why i would need to get the crank pulley bolt off, but i am currently having trouble gettin a good grip on the tensioner bolt and i cant loosen the timing belt enough to get it off.

So you can get the lower timing cover off? Take the crank pulley off first i think. If you thought the tensioner bolt is bad, wait till you try that mother.
