head gasket


My '89 Charade CLX 1.3L 4 cyl has a blown head gasket. Do you have any tips or suggestions for doing the repair? All parts--head set, timing belt & tensioner, and water pump are available. Beck/Arnley, Bando, Gates, Aitex, etc., seem to be the most available product lines. Do you have any preferences for replacement parts? Thanks, Richard
