In Process Of Changing Head Gaskets, Help LOL.

I finally got the shop cleaned and the truck in and currently tearing into the 6.0L. I have read much about it before starting but right now I'm concered that I'll need to tear apart some A\C lines to get to the passenger side head and exhaust manifold. I hadn't read anything about having to do this, any help or tips would be appreciated. The driver's side is pretty much opened up now and doesn't look too bad to get to.

All I know is there are tons of connectors and the water pump looks like an octopus with hoses leaving in all directions LOL, maybe I'll get this 2000 piece puzzle back together someday, that is if I ever get it completely apart.

Check on e-bay for a FORD workshop manual. I have one and it shows everything step by step. About 30-40 dollars.
