I've got a project. The short story, my timing belt is shot and the valves hit the piston heads - not good.

Ok, i'm busy pulling the motor apart and I'm stuck trying to get the bolts loose to remove the valves.

They look like they are a "reverse torque" but I had no luck at the auto parts store ....
First: trying to get the right tool. The guy keeps saying it is a 13m. It is not. Anybody know for sure?

Second: After I eventually remove the valves, what holds the spring onto the valves?
(i can probably figure this out once it's out but tips welcome)

Third: When I reassemble the parts, how do you determine what is Top Dead Center of the Compression stroke of the 1st cylinder?

Ok, pencil read to take notes.

Thanks in advance.

sbr711 is an unknown quantity at this point
1 - Buy a manual, read it before you go into this blind.

2 - Remove cylinder head.... let machine shop deal with it... be a whole lot faster and done right the first time,

Go to the link seen below.... there is a link inside the topic that shows in great detail how a 2.4 is supposed to be set up.... read it slowly and carefully... follow to the letter and all should be well for you .
