3.0 cam synchronizer problems

If you take the cam synchro out then turn the motor to top dead center without a synchro in it can you mess it up?

You will have to retime or align the sensor/syncro assembly. Here is info from a service manual regarding the procedure. I looked it up for a 98 Ranger 3.0L v6 engine. I am not sure what year you have. Hope this helps.

  1. Rotate the (1) crankshaft until the No.1 cylinder is at TDC of the compression stroke and the (2) TDC mark lines up with the (3) timing mark. CAUTION: Do not turn the crankshaft or the camshaft during the removal and installation procedure or the fuel system timing will be out of time with the engine and possibly cause engine damage.

  1. Install the Syncro Positioning Tool on the camshaft synchronizer by rotating the tool until it engages the notch in the camshaft synchronizer housing and the armature. CAUTION:
    • A Syncro Positioning Tool must be used during the installation of the replacement synchronizer assembly. Failure to follow this procedure will result in the fuel system being out of time with the engine, possibly causing engine damage.
    • It is very important to coat the gear on the camshaft synchronizer with Super Premium SAE-5W30 Motor Oil or equivalent meeting Ford specification WSS-M2C153-G or equivalent, prior to installation. Failure to do so could result in gear failure upon engine start-up.

  1. Install the camshaft synchronizer housing assembly so the arrow on the Syncro Positioning Tool is 38 degrees from the centerline of the engine. NOTE: During installation, the arrow on the Syncro Positioning Tool will rotate clockwise until oil pump intermediate shaft and camshaft gear engages.
