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.
