This is an interference engine so there is a very good chance of valve damage.

I think sourcing another cylinder head will be the easiest option rather than repair yours.

haynes will help you with torque setting and doing the timing none the less though

Thanks, just out of intrest do you know if the engine is the same as the fiesta, it would make the search at the scrapyard a little easier?
