Have Ford Questions? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
Hi, my name is XXXXX XXXXX I can assit you with this. Are you available to chat??
Yes I am.
Hi Doug, after some research, have a question, when you replaced the syncornizer did you use the Ford specific tool to install it? This has to be timed to the camshaft.
Yes I did.
Did you have it lined up correctly, this is the part I alway screw up on, it is real easy to be off a few degrees..
I put #1 cylinder at top dead center on compression stroke and installed sensor useing special tool.
Ok, give me a a few will get exact instructions for you...
I'm going to take a shower while you check that out and will return when done.
Hi Doug having difficulty getting the graphic to down load but if you make sure the pointer on the special tool is exactly 38 degrees to the left of center of the engine with the engine at top dead center. You should be in timing as required. Let me know.
Please explain what you mean by 38 degrees to the left of center line. What pointer are you talking about?
Glad you got it and best fo luck to you..
Thanks and God bless.
