Cool glad you are back on track. The gaskets are pretty straight forward they sit in a channel made into the timing and valve cover they are all different so you can't mix them up. Just put a dab of rtv silicone where the block, head, and cover meet, where the head, cover, and valve cover meet, and where the block, cover, and oil pan meet. So 10 dabs of silicone at the joints. Don't forget the crank sensor tone wheel. The teeth point towards the front of the truck. I normally take out the rear most valve cover bolt and chunk it. Makes the covers a little easier to install and Ford deleted that bolt in 2008 so it's not needed anyway

I blew it and forgot to put the crankshaft gasket on. Should take off the tensioners and install it? this something I think I should do but all of the cam caps are tight to torque. Will losining the chain and replaing the gasket be a problem at this point? Also in the picture below there are two gasket I do not remeber taking off or even know where they go, can you help?

Please be more specific, I am not sure what you are talking about. Thank you.

Those 2 black gaskets goes between the VCT housing and the head. If you didnt remove the VCT housing then dont worry about replacing them. The small o-ring goes on the oil pickup tube where it connects to the oil pump. The crankshaft gasket is actually the front crankshaft oil seal and it installs into the timing cover

I don't want to get my hands TOO dirty on this one, or worse yet - tarnish my already questionable reputation -, and I know this is an old photo, but I still don't _see_ the signature DIMPLE on that left bank Tensioner Arm that we talked about previously. Ref: Page 10, post 145, this thread. I do not believe the tensioner arms are inter-changeable. Have you verified this?

on timing cover seal

on keyway as assembling put rtv at that point ti keep oil from coming out . Any metal surface that you can see a joint or feel it with finger nail gets a dab of rtv /timing cover /valve covers/ oil pan gasket .

Yeah I know thank you torqued. The replacement guidance from rock auto the left-hand side did not have a dimple. When I compared all the new There was a slight difference with the left guide

Good to know some aftermarket guides do not have bump on drivers side to identify

I wonder if you are supposed to guess if your guides are destroyed for comparison. I would advise only OEM in that case. Too bad somebody doesn't make tougher ones on the side that break . I need to see this engine run . Can't fix grand kid -- frustration --frustration. Something should work . .

Those are radio noise suppressors for the ignition they go on the top timing cover studs one goes on the driver's side behind the power steering reservoir bracket and the other one goes on the passenger side behind the radiator hose support bracket.

I'm getting conflicting information on the torque of the timing chain cover bolts. Makuloco says 180 in/lbs and bottom two 35ft/lbs. Online torque spec says 216in/lbs all the way around. Any suggestions is appreciated. VERY hot in Chesapeake today! Thank you.
