I just bought a 97 F150 that was hammering like crazy, so I pulled the engine and found a bent rod and broken piston. Anyway, I'm trying to figure out everything so when it is time to put the motor back, I'll know what I am doing. So my first question is how do you set the timing? Any special tools required? Detailed explanations would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in Advanced.
I'm not real sure, the only engines I've ever worked on were chevys. The thing is, I've got all everything pulled and out, and I just don't know if when it's time to put it all back together, do I just bolt everything up, or am I going to need to align something?
I'm assuming since you asked that I am going to have to set both, so I guess I need to know a little about both ignition and cam timing.
Sorry about all the questions but, I went and looked through all the parts the Camshaft Position sensor and everything below is still installed on the front plate. Do I still need to use that special tool?
