Question 2005 5.4L 3V Lifter Replacement

Hello all,

I am wanting, maybe "wanting" is the wrong word haha, to replace the lifters on my 2005 F150 with a 5.4L 3V. I am hoping someone can supply me with a "how to" by way of a link, or a play by play based on their personal experience, etc,. I have a mechanical background so I'm not afraid to attempt this but knowing any short cuts, tricks, warnings, etc, prior to starting would be helpful.

Thanks in advance.

It doesn't have lifters. It has cam followers (like rocker arms) and lash adjusters (similiar to lifters but don't ride on the cams) With a cam follower tool, you can remove them to access the lash adjusters.
Why do you need to replace them already? They rarely fail.

I found that half the people call them lifters and the others lash adjusters but yes I'm talking about the "lash adjusters". I'm replacing the ones on the left bank because they're noisy (confirmed by a Ford tech). By the way, my truck has 75k miles so I'm guessing it's not that rare with mileage like mine and according to the Ford tech I spoke to even on trucks with less mileage with this engine.

What exactly does this "cam follower tool" do and where can I buy one ? Does Snap-On carry it ?

Thanks for your response.

I have done it without the tool, but I have never tried a 3V engine yet.
