Icon4 Blown headgasket 94 2.3L i4 - parts list, any suggestions or comments that will make.

Headgasket on the Ranger is blown, I'm estimating $250 in parts to do the job right.

I wasn't really expecting to find a coolant reservoir full of oil today. lol

Spent a little over $300 in parts today, some of which have to be freight dirrect shipped from the factory. I even have to wait till mid-next week for a torque wrench to come in... I might just wait a bit longer than that and buy new valves as well.

Felpro head gasket set
Head bolts
Water pump
Water pump gasket
Timing belt
Timing belt tensioner
Upper radiator hose
Lower radiator hose
Catalytic converter gasket
Oil + filter
Speedometer cable
Coolant temperature sensor

At least I have the cash... Now where's the free time?
Anything that I need to know to make this job run smoothly? Anywhere I can find a list of torque specs?

and if someone knows them, could someone please post a list of every socket that I will need for this job? I just want to make sure that I have everything before I start wrenching.

Picked up a Haynes manual when I was ordering my parts today... Forgot a few small things like new rad-hose clamps and I still need to pick up a torque wrench. Hope I can find one that either goes high enough in inch pounds or in increments that will allow me to do the math on ft-lbs.

Still wish I knew the bolt sizes on everything so I wouldn't have to run back and forth to the store every time I need something.

A few of my parts are on special order, got everything on my list minus the torque wrench for $331.78 (including the Haynes manual and rust penetrant).
