You took the words right out of my mouth. Reading threads like this only further exemplify why I'm glad my job doesn't involve dealing with people. For the most part, I don't have faces to put to the...

Absolutely NOT!!! These engines (and any engine for that matter) are only assembled one way, and one way only.

ABSOLUTELY NOT. You could easily cross thread or strip the threads on either the bolt (not so important) or the crank (BIG TIME important) by doing that. In absence of the installer tool, you could...

The field I've highlighted in bold red is the correct orientation of the crank sprocket when removing/installing the timing chains.

That's because that is NOT the part number. That is what Ford calls the ENGINEERING number, or STAMPING number, not the actual part number. For it to be an actual Ford part number, that last letter...
