2005 5.4 3v- replacing phasers, chains, tensioners, and guides
I am replacing the phasers on an 05 5.4 3v. While pulling valve covers, I Noticed alot of slop in the driver's side chain. Digging further, I removed the timing cover and found all kinds of "goodies". The passenger chain guide is completely gone- pieces everywhere, but can only find ~25% of it (so I know the oil pan is loaded). It is tight right now, but the timing cover has a TON of missing aluminum and the block is also scored. The driver's chain is extremely loose, the drivers tensioner is locked up as well. SO...
In addition to replacing phasers I am now going to replace the chains, tensioners, and guides.
My driver's cam sprocket appears to have jumped a tooth as the mark is at a different position than the passeners side. EVERYTHING says to paint the links (if you dont see gold or black links already... which I don't) but I 1- need to verify where the old chain SHOULD be and 2- am going to install NEW chains.
I have Googled the hell out of the web/youtube for a 2005 5.4 3v guide on NEW timing chain installation. This site is one of the best I have found but even here I have not located exactly what I am looking for.
Where can I find instructions on doing this "from scratch" using new chains? Again, I do not see any marks on old chains to see if I am where I need to be to start with. Also, my timing mark on the timing cover is essentially at 11 o'clock for the harmonic, 6 o'clock for the crank gear.
Thanks in advance!
