Head gasket info

Just getting started with this job and has a couple questions. Do I need to rotate the crank to TDC when removing the valve train? If so is there a mark on the crank? Who can recommend a good machine shop, in Denver, to go through my heads? Do I really want them milled if necessary? Got mixed reviews on that.

Thanks in advance for your help. I'll probably have more questions before I'm done.

Take the heads off of the engine and before you install them again turn the crank ( should be easy to do by hand since the heads are off until the crackshaft dowel is in the 6 o'clock position. Its the little dimple in between 2 of the 4 crank pulley bolts.

What about keeping it in time, does it time itself since its gear driven? Sorry for the ignorance but the only other engine I've tore the heads off of was a dohc inline 6. Thanks in advance

You don't have to worry about that. Just rotate the crank so that the dowel is in the 6 o'clock position then reassemble.
