The book is wrong on each cam gear there are two sets of marks "notches align them facing each other in the center of head nevermind "I" and "E" if correct you'll have both of them making one line in the center of both pulleys and the other set of notches will be 45 degrees below. I found this out the hard way just finished with mine for info and tips on mechanics and parts for your ride visit my site at www.godspeedmotorsportsonline.com

Can't remember the particular model 1998, but generally, here's how to remove the starter on a 90's Protege:
Disconnect the negative battery terminal to remove power from the starter. The starter and starter solenoid are one unit.
There should be 2 or 3 14mm bolts holding the starter to the tranny. At least one of these bolts is accessed from above the transmission, requiring the removal of (at least)the air filter housing and intake, and the battery and tray if you want to make it easy on yourself. Remove those first, then remove the top starter bolt before you go under the car. You might be able to access the top bolt from the left wheel well if you take out the plastic splash guard behind the left wheel, and have a nice long extension with a "wobbly" 14mm socket. There are a number of 10mm bolts and a few plastic fasteners that hold this on.
I believe the starter is located behind a bracket that supports the intake manifold from the engiine block. Remove the 4 bolts on this bracket and remove it from the vehicle. The starter wire may be attached to this bracket with a plastic clip, just undo the clip and the bracket should come right out. The bolts that hold the bracket on the manifold end are usually pretty hard to get to; be patient.
Once you have access to the starter, there should be either 1 or two bolts that hold the starter in on the bottom. Remove the bolts and carefully remove the starter from it's position in the transmission. Once you have the starter free, remove the starter cable and the small wire from the clip on the starter solenoid.
Re-install in reverse order.

First I removed the power connector by squeezing the sides of it. Then you have to pull back the rubber hood from the light. Remove it completely and lay it aside. After that I pushed downwards on a metal tab to unhook a clip that holds the bulb in the mount. The tab is on the side of the bulb that is away from the motor. The bulb will come out easily then. Note the way it comes out and put it back the same way. There are 3 tabs on the bulb housing that need to go in the same place they came out of. This keeps the bulb secure I think.

Take a look at the boot that goes from the mass air flow and the throttle body, they like to dry out and split allowing more air into the motor.
