2002 5.4L timing chain install

After MONTHS of getting around to it me and my son are ready to put the heads back on his van's motor.

First of all, one of the guide pins (ring) in one head is missing.... reckon it would be safe to install without it by just aligning the head very carefully then tightening down the head bolts?

Is there any reasonable way to install timing chains without having to buy the special camshaft and crankshaft holding tools?

You need the alignment dowel. It keeps the oil and coolant passages lined up. you dont need any special tools to set the chains. Go here http://www.ford-trucks.com/forums/70...g-a-5-4-a.html and read my post.
