Installing Timing parts Quick question Please help

Hello,

I am replacing all of the timing parts chains guides etc. anyways I have the old stuff out and when I put the new chains in it seems that the phasers are off by 3 teeth..... my question is can I just roll the cam over to make the timing marks line up? or will that destroy my engine when I start it?

can someone please inform me on how to time this 5.4 3v motor (2010 f150 Lariat) again all chains guides tensioners are off

Thank you so much for any help/advice

Jon

Ok I've read what you posted, from what I understand I can move crankshaft to correct position and also move the camshafts to correct positions? to line up the timing marks. I probably should have stated before I am not a mechanic I am fixing my truck myself due to the cost to have dealer fix it. That is why my questions may seem simple to you, but to me this seems very confusing I am worried that if I just roll the camshafts so the cam phaser lines up with chain that in someway that would throw my pistons out of wack.

Did you put it in time before taking the chains off? Take some pics of what you are working with and post them. Pictures say a thousand words.
