Hi guys, thanks for the information. There are no manifold cats, its '01 156 TS, assuming this is a CF2 engine. I dont think the head has been off, and it has a steel gasket? I will have to check the history now to confirm.
Well the repair was supposed to be for the cam belt only, but like I said they had no tools and f-'d it right up. Unless the broken #4 exhaust valve is from a previously changed wrong head gasket, as you suggest....
Another problem with this engine is #1 spark plug hole filling with coolant, thats why I have the donor head, incase a crack somewhere, ever seen this? This was pre-cambelt change as well.
I'm glad I checked here, before going ahead. This car is a real POS and hate fixing other peoples f-ups.
