Re: tempra SW 2.0L DOHC timing belt broken.

Set the pistons all half way up the bores.
Rotate the camshafts to check the clearances. Take care not to allow inlet and exhaust valves in any cylinder to clash.

Bent valves will show with big clearances. If all are ok, align the timing marks and fit a new belt. Turn it over gently at least twice, by hand, if ok, do a compression check. Might save removnig the head.
The head is quite heavy, with two camshafts, and awkward to lift. There will be some oil retained in the head, around the camshafts, so don't tip it towards you, or you'll get messy. Should be easier, being transverse, than my Argenta many years ago.
