I got the broken bolt out of the head with no damage! I thought I had the bolts in order, but over the last week, I must have got them out of alignment. The top 1 and top 2 bolts are longer than the other 4, and that was the problem. I got another bolt and camshaft, I will put it back as soon as I get another new left heat shield gasket. Is this gasket really needed?
Thanks,
David

i believe some have just used silicone. I don't think it really is important, if youre talking about the gasket between the back timing cover and the head, right? there is an oil seal in the head for that.

Congratulations on getting the bolt out! I celebrate with you! (You buying? Ha Ha!)

Great Idea. Sometimes, or many times, I over analize my situation. I can put it together today then!
Thanks a million!

Newest Update: I got the camshaft, belts, intakes, water pipe, and belts on. I have to put on the engine guard, 3 more bolts in my exaust, remove my #1 and #3 Plugs, and see if the timing is correct by turing it 1 complete to see if it comes up on the #2 Cylinder turn with a 12mm wrench and most of all, make sure it does not stick, then adjust the valves, change the oil, add new collant, put the timing covers on, and Im finally done for the second and last time.
The timing went on with no single tooth mark off. Spooky, but it still set of F1, the Way I took it of. I may have to redo the timing belts. I need a crash course on adjusting valves now.
Thanks Everyone,
