Oh and make sure you get it timed correctly. You have an interference engine and if not timed correctly you will bend some valves. (Major engine damage)

dont even attempt to do it without the kit. j-42069 1000 dollars it is the mechanic grade. 2nd and cheaper choice otc6687 knock off aftermarket kit. can be ordered online for around $150.00 and couple of really good how to videos on how to use the kit on you tube. hope I helped

Should I leave the crankshaft mark at 60deg.btdc on the crank in order for the pistons not hit the valves and leave the can on its marks correct
