with like problemz once you take off the head you will need a new head gasket.
to do so unbolt the air intake and separate from head. also unbolt exhaust manifold and undo the lines to the cooling on right side of engine and un plug and dress electric out of the way. you might even unbolt the fuel rail and carefully move it to the side.. then
unbolt ten mill allen heads you circled ten, make sure to start in the middle and skip outward if it seems they might strip clean the crude out of the boltholes.....................
make sure you dont start it back up untill you have made blown to smithereens fo sho the cams are lined up right with the crankshaft...........good luck
