"Down" should always be "open", and you can find out where is "close" position. Probably right or left. So "Up" will be "reserve".

I know this doesn't relate to the reassembly process, that's been covered in the other answer by Paul. However most of the time, the rear sprocket is not physically attached to the wheel. They are two separate pieces which have rubber inserts between the metal "teeth". The rubber inserts are there for dampening torque from the motor if you let the clutch out ...

I'm not sure by looking at the pictures if you could reach far enough in, but can't you just get a pair of vise grips / locking pliers on the heads? If you tighten it down really well, you should be able to get enough grip to rotate the bolts by the looks of it.

Easy outs? No... get reverse drill bits and proper extractors like these.

I've had great success in the past selecting a 12 sided socket that almost just say fits over the head of these types of bolts. Hammer it on so it's fully covering the head and sitting squarely then attach a ratchet and turn it out. This method has never once failed me. You do have to select an old socket however.

Heat is the key to loosen the bolts off - I use a butane torch, if you have access to oxy torch, they can be carefully used too. Keep it local to the bolt as it can affect the rotor magnets which may or may not be an issue for you if you are replacing the actual rotor). Then for the knackered bolt heads, find a sacrificial Torx bit or the right size to jam ...

I would use my mig welder to weld a steel rod onto the head. You could weld a T shape on the end of the rod for something to hold. After removing each one, just cut the bolt off the end and repeat. The heat usually helps to free the bolt too. Make sure you protect anything nearby that could be damaged by sparks.

Cut a small slot in one edge of the periphery (muffler abrasive whizzer tool), and hammer a chisel in that slot to move the socket head capscrew in the loosening (CCW) direction. You needed to replace it anyway... Also, you CANNOT use too much PB blaster, Kroil, or whatever your favorite liquid penetrating oil is. Rap the head lightly with a hammer a few ...

I can't tell from the picture, but if the bolt heads are accessable, you could grab them with a good set of vise grips and get them loose. Easy outs may be tough his situation because the hole in the head of the bolts not deep enough to allow easy outs to get a good bite into the bolt. It may be easiest to drill a bit deeper with a slightly larger drill ...

The heater core may be plugged, if fluid is full and there aren't any leaks. Check this when the engine is hot, if one hose is cold or warm and the other is hot the heater core is plugged. The temp gauge fluctuations may be an electrical issue or there's air in the system. If you backprobe the temperature sensor have someone rev the engine and look for ...

My buddy recommends using Irwin Easy Outs. these to remove from inside the hex And these to remove from the outside Impact drivers are always recommended. If that doesn't do it, vise grips could, but could also cause more damage. Also getting some penetrating lube on them will help if you haven't already.

If it turns over but doesn't start change the spark plugs if it's been sitting for a couple months

This shouldn't be too crazy. You will probably need a multimeter to test things. (If you watch the specials carefully, there is at least one tool outlet that gives these away as special coupon deals I would start the journey with the service manual. It's available here. Check out section #6, electrical. Your system is pretty simple. A couple of ...
