318ti head gasket

Hello all. Im new to the bmw world and wanted some advice from the pros. I found a deal on a 1996 318ti that i couldnt pass up. It only cost me 150 bucks! but it came with problems. Its in need of a head gasket replacement and water pump. My main question i need a answer to is the specal tools required to R&R the head. I am a ase certified automechanic but not in the bmw world =]. I know i will probably need some sort of tool for the timing of the cams... is there anyway to do it without the tools? if not where would be a good place to get the tools from. Also are there any part sites that sell good gasket and water pump? Thanks all who can help
