Hi. At this point you need to remove the timing chains, the camshaft sprockets and the camshafts. Make sure the exhaust is unbolted, then just remove the head bolts

Any special tools needed and what else has to come off for front engine cover to come off.
Expert:  EricFromCT replied 3 months ago.

You need a puller to remove the crankshaft pulley.

To get the front cover off the upper oil pan needs to be removed, the timing control solenoids and the intake timing sensors. and the crank pulley needs to be removed.

Yes. The chains need to be removed, then the cam sprockets then the camshafts so you can get to the head bolts.
