I could really do with some help on this one as I have managed to remove the head, clean it up, remove the exhust stud (as one snapped) and at first light (ish) I will re-assemble the engine. I just need to know what to do about the timing chain? I know it has variable valves and so the timing is electronic, but physically... do I line it up to 20deg (as it should be) or leave it at 30deg (to take into account chain stretch)? I don't want to bugger the engine, especially after all this work, so need your advice.
Also, what is the best way to renew the exhust manifold's 11 studs? Do I put the nut on and just screw them in? If I did this, wouldn't they simply undo when I undid the nut again?
