Default head swap observations

I did a head swap, got the engine to start for a sec, but missing exhaust studs and rad hose to finish up, but here are a couple of things i noticed when doing it:
1: if you remove the cam, you dont have to remove all the hoses from the water outlet, makes it much easier to install, the cam sensor sticks out to far to reassemble

2. be careful, when the cam gear is removed and the chain drops down in the block, the chain can slip off the crank and the colored link will move

3, make sure to find the 2 bolts holding the harness to the outlet and the block, of the water outlet or wont move to slide off and on the head
