Headgasket replacement

I'm doing some research today to find out what is needed to replace my headgaskets. Last night on the way home it pressurized the coolant resivour and blew coolant all over the truck. Then I noticed the oil temp started to rise and the truck was bellowing white smoke with that anti-freeze smell.
Anyhow, was wondering if you guys could help me put together a generic parts list. I'm not sure what gaskets are reusable (if any), if the head bolts are TTY or not, etc. Also what are the torque specs on the heads?
Any and all help is appreciated. Thanks

Wow that rough. Don't hear of too many 7.3's blowing head gaskets.

DON'T EVER REUSE GASKETS unless you want to do the job a second time.
I know Ford has a head gasket kit for the 6.0 that has more than what is needed. And I don't think you bolts are the trouque to yeild crap like mine.

your going to need 2 head gaskets,head bolts,a thermostat,and injector o-ring kits.you have to pull the injectors to get to some of the head bolts,plus you don't want to break an injector tip while removing the head.
