    New head gasket is a must. Also new head bolts. Might as well throw on a rocker cover gasket too.

    So your determined to take the head off over a glow plug tip.

    Unless you mean the plug its self has snapped off in the thread ?

    Ok have fun


    "piston rings"

    Ok with rings goes a
    re-bore
    with that a
    crank grind
    with that a set of
    main bearings
    might as well do the
    DMF
    then the top end
    Valve seals
    also the
    Hydraulic tappets
    dont forget the
    head gasket set
    including new
    head bolts

    I left a load of other stuff off that's probably ok to clean up
    inlet manifold
    and
    EGR
    dont forget the
    water pump

    and
    timing belt kit
    you will need.
    Anti freeze
    erm
    Oil
    and
    Oil filter


    Sure you don't want to fish it out with a magnet ??

    Just some fun hope you see it also

    If you take the head off all you actually NEED to do is a new head gasket and bolts. Oh and coolant coz its drained, might as well change it. No point in trying to reuse.
