Have Ford Questions? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
Welcome, I'm Chris (aka Moose). I'm here to help 365 days a year, but not every hour of the day. I try to prevent delays as much as possible. Please understand I am not there and can only advise based on what you tell me. Let's get started.
Does this file cover each concern you asked about? https://www.dropbox.com/s/rxfjym8m0bl0lot/46romeo.pdf?dl=0
Please make sure to rate my answer prior to logging off, as this is how I get credit for helping you. If you have not yet received 5 star excellent service from me. Please follow up so you get everything from me that you expected from the deposit you have already paid, which I get nothing of till you rate me. Rating does not close the post nor prevent replying at a later date.
The special tool is needed to lock the engine at TDC. You can get it close without the tool then use a straw or dowel rod in the #1 plug hole turning the crank back and forth to get it just right.
So you should see #1 at no valves pressed, #3 intake valve has just closed
That is so far down the firing order, it would be impossible for me to determine where those valves would be. #8 is getting ready to be on TDC so no valves pressed.
Correct 1 no valves pressed and 8 no valves pressed since it is about to be at TDC compression.
Hello Chris here again,
I am checking in to make sure you got everything you expected from my answer. If not please reply so we can resolve your issue together.
Thanks, ***** ***** is set to time out and close on the 22nd
All follow ups on the same concern after rating are allowed. <ost replies I address are from customers whom have already rated me.
Based on the timing marks it does show to be out of time.
If you follow the timing marks and get it at TDC 1 you can get it all set right.
Looks good to me.
