disconnect battery, fuel lines, and harness from upper engine. disconnect the exhaust flange nuts to remove exuast pipe from manifold remove any and all brackets attached to head that will prevent it from coming apart from the engine. remove valve cover and remove rocker arms and push rods. remove head bolts and separate from engine. The head is heavy especially with the intake and exhaust manifold bolted to it. I would recommend bolting a chain to the front and back of head and use a cherry picker to get it out or if u dont a cherry picker have someone help you cause it is pretty heavy.

I have tried wire brush on a drill press -high speed. This will remove crud. Make sure not to hit stem that enters valve guide.
BUT I would only recommend: Take them to a rebuilding shop for sandblasting. Any decent shop will throw in quick valve inspection and free advice.
Be sure to tag each valve with colored twist ties, tags, etc. Ink might be removed. The shop will have its own I.D. method.
Buy a Haynes service manual and follow the instructions. I did and it wasn't too difficult.

The older 60's & 70's bobbing head dolls were made of paper mache. I have been restoring these older dolls for ~8-9 years now. For large damaged or missing areas on the doll, i use drywall cement & white glue. It takes multiple applications of the drywall paste to fill or build up an area.
I have also figured out how to fixed and replace decals. Can't give away all my secrets.

It will depend on if a lube or dry torque, type of washer used. If lock washer is used then less torque is needed to not damage the lock washer. It should be about 170 ft/lbs max dry with flat washer, if it leaves an imprint in the metal (head or washer) it is too tight. In this case use less torque or down grade. Please note that the washer side is normally the side torqued, regardless of where the washer isi.e. head or threaded side, if concerned then washer both ends.

The danger would be introducing cold water into a hot engine which could crack the block.
It sounds like you have an algae problem. Shock the pool and toss in a dose of algaecide. Take a sample of the water along to your pool shop and get it tested while you are getting the algaecide.
