    Default Head removal help please

    Right guys ive decided to give this a go myself to save me some pennies.

    The engine is a z18xe

    Im just wanting you to look over this and make sure im heading in the right direction on how I think I need to do things :

    so far ive done :

    aux belt removed
    drivers side engine mount removed
    cambelt covers off

    Now this is what im planning on doing next, so can somebody confirm im doing it right please :

    Line up camshaft marks by turning crankshaft clockwise until they are all inline
    remove crankshaft pulley by putting it in 5th and getting somebody on the brake

    once that is removed, I can go ahead and remove the cambelt etc..
    Then I can remove both camshaft sprockets by holding the cams in place with a spanner on the flat parts to keep it lined up.

    Once the sprockets are removed I can then remove the inlet and exhaust manifold, any wiring etc.. that will get in the way of taking the head off, then undo the head bolts and off it comes.

    Does this sound about right guys ?

    Thanks very much

    Actually, is there any need for me to take the crankshaft pulley off ? Or is it not possible to remove the cambelt with it still on ?

    Thanks
