First of all, I'll try to explain as well as possible, some technical terms might be off. Can be difficult to find the right translation at times
To start of, my initial question:
There are 10 screws going down into the engine after removing the cam-cover, they look like torx screws but I fail to find a proper fitting size. I think I tried TX60 and 70, being to small or large, been unable to find a 65, but they just look a bit odd to me. Anyone know exactly what they are, and what size? (Might have been 50 to 60 I tried, if that makes more sense)
After my car failed it's test (Much like an MOT), due to extensive rust, I bought a new 156 2.0 with an engine that was broken after a cambelt failure.
The original plan was to replace its engine, with that of my old car, having done an engine swap before. However, now it's winter and constantly below 0C, and I don't have access to a garage to work. So Obviously I want to keep the amount of work to a minimum. I still have the old head(?) from the first engine I replaced, with valves and all, so I was having a small hope that maybe I could open the original engine and simple replace some broken valves, or replace the entire head, and get that one going for a while.
How difficult is it to get all of this off while the car is still inside the car? And what are the chances of things being restorable after a failure? If I have to take the engine out of the car, I might as well use the other engine and put that one in.
Any good guides to getting to the valves and cylinders? will need some torque descriptions for when reassembling.
