2000 SE 2.0 Zetec to Zetec Engine Swap

Last week I let my fuel get down to less than an 1/8th tank with passengers and ran out of fuel (fuel light never kicked on). Refueled and then started stalling around 800rm. Replaced fuel filter. Ran for approx 2 days (roughly 120 miles) and started stalling again, this time with no passengers and a 1/4 tank gas. Refueled and attempted restart, and found out my timing belt was done for... was missing approx 10 in of teeth So of course, I blew a valve and have purchased a new engine.

For whatever reason an SE comes up in parts searches with a SOH and mine is obviously a DOH. I've got everything (I think) disconnected from the old engine and I'm attempting to lower it.

Before I do that, I'm separating what I call the transmission, what i suppose is technically the transaxle from the engine and I'm looking for the torque bolts. From what I'm reading, there's no true converter, its inside the transmission and I need to bolt a piece of wood over the bell housing to hold the converter inside. As it sits now, I really feel like I'm missing bolts somewhere.

I just want see if anyone has any advice before I lower and/or snap off parts I need.

The Zetec is not an interference engine, so how did you bend valves?
