Sadly there are no shortcuts here...

The liners cannot be resealed without dismantling the engine, they must be removed (slid out of the top of the block).

First rule though - assume nothing!, start with the basics/most simple, cheap and obvious things and work from there.

Why did you replace the head out of interest? Did you find any fault with the one fitted?

As John says above, you need to pay special attention to the heights of each liner before deciding upon which HG to use.

Note! never reuse any head gasket, even if the engine has never been started. The gasket has been compressed and therefore effectively scrap.

Good luck.
