Hi there:

In general, the tips you've listed are very important to remember, but you are missing on very critical step - purchase a 2001 Honda Accord service repair manual and follow their specific instructions exactly. Also, if you're completing this repair due to overheating damage; you might want to replace all ignition system sensors and connectors as well, including the crankshaft position sensor and ALL electrical connections going to those sensors.
