    If I can't do it slow then it's not going to get done.

There is an Onan manual in the manuals section that might help you. If not someone with more knowledge on Onans will be along to help. Good luck.

Here is the Service Manual for these. That should help. There are 2 heads on it.

Sounds like you need to Read Up on this engine and maybe even some GT repair basic books first!  Don't loose the bolts to each piece taken off, keep those and small items in sandwich bags MARKED what they were for and go slow. Seems not a lot of teardown needed on those to get head clear to remove, problem is going to be the engine is probly turned sideways in chassis and becomes the big issue for reaching one of them.

Not trying to be a smart ass, but if you don't where the head gasket is, you shouldn't attempt to replace it yourself.
