Special tools to dismantle the head? You don't expect to do this with a screwdriver and a stanley knife, now do you?
If you haven't done anything even remotely like this in the past, maybe you should play it safe and pay someone else to do it. There are several things you could damage during dissassembly and reassembly, and you'll only have yourself to blame if it goes pop a week after you put it back together.
Have you got a workshop or something? At least a valve compressor?
