camshaft bolt. clock wise or anticlock wise

Hi, i hope you can help me. i have a 02 mini with no compression on No.4 cylinder. i have taken the engine apart as far as i can. But i am not sure of the direction of the bolt that holds cam chain wheel onto the cam shaft. (thats question 1). being cam chain, am i right in thinking that the bolt at the back of the block behind the tensioner has to come off aswell to aid refitting. due to it being sprung ( thats question 2). and ( No. 3), does the tensioner (at the back) and the guide (at the front) come away with the head once all the head bolts are undone.
