So I just get her running well and I blow the head gasket. I do have a gasket kit, but my question is do I need to replace the head studs? I am trying to budget this as I am always poor. Is there anything else I need or need to know? Thanks. 66 Pl411 with a 1.3l.

No.  But be sure to clean out the bolt holes with a tap set to insure you can get the studs firmly in the holes.
