Have Ford Questions? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
I am John, a Ford dealer technician.
I hope I can help solve your problem quickly and accurately.
Unfortunately you cannot time these engines without a special set of ford tools. The set of tools is about $400 from otc. Your best bet would be to ask a dealer tech to come to you and set it up for you. Offer to pay a tech around $100 cash and someone should do it for you no problem. You are going to need to ask the tech personally, don't ask a person behind the desk of they won't help you. I am posting the procedure out of the Ford manual to clarify what I am talking about.

Ok, if you don't have the damper tool tdc is straight up. Make sure this is as straight as possible as these engines will bend valves if off too much.
The keyway straight up?
Yes put the key straight up.
That is not the oil pump. That is the balance shaft. I am posting a pic of how to time it.
