Head R&R Video Please

Okay so its come down to having the right passenger side head replaced on a reman'd 5.4 2v engine and my mechanic while knowledgeable is a bit skittish about these engines. Much to his credit he dismisses my claim "its easy as pie.......". That's one reason he's my trusted mechanic--will admit when he needs more info that my assurances.

So I'm looking for a definitive video that shows step-by-step how to install the timing changes after the head is installed and properly torqued. I need a video rather than a written description only because that sort of instruction is his preference. I've cruised YouTube but mostly finding 3v presentations----not really sure if those would be or should be helpful---open to advice on that.

I'll be buying whatever cam holding devices needed for this one time job---quality is key for this acquisition. I don't believe I need a whole timing chain installation set of tools---just the right side cam holding piece? Open to suggestions on brand etc for this.

Video links only please and TIA.

No video nor special tools needed man. We used a single sheet of paper showing the timing marks. And it was correct on the first try.
Admittedly I was very skittish about getting the timing correct on an OHC engine. But we jumped in with a sheet of paper we found on the internet and found that it wasn’t difficult AT ALL.
