No, they don't.

They recommend a 5W-20 that meets Ford spec WSS-M2C-930-A, which has now been replaced by WSS-M2C945-A. Most any conventional SN/GF-5 oil in 5W-20 will meet this spec.

Rebuild

Great info here, have not seen some of these things apart before.
I'm sure it will run like a champ when you're done.
Well done.

Thanks. I havn't spent a lot of time on here, but it seems that there are not many post with pics of the details inside these engines. I thought others might like to see some of the technical stuff inside. The intake manifold itself is quite an interesting piece I thought.

It is nice to see a complete write up. I would like to do a full rebuild in the next few years so now I know what I'm dealing with a little better
