tensioners and idlers, only if necessary?

you can check the tensioners out but if its got high miles I would just change them. I think the idler bearing is replacable.
the compression test will tell you general eng. condition. the lower end may be just fine if so leave it alone. if you end up doing the head gaskets you will be able to inspect the cylinders a bit better.

Why take the engine out twice?

How would you pressure test the coolant system?
Oh by the way, do you guys have a better idea for separating the steering knuckle from the drive axle assembly without taking the whole assembly to the dealer as recommended in the Haynes 1600 & 1800 manual. Last time I did it I used a sledge, but I think in hindsight this maybe was a bad idea.
thanks again everybody. I know i'm new here, but you guys have been really cool and helpful.
