Special Tool(s) Camshaft Alignment Timing Tool
Remove the camshaft journal caps.
Coat the sealing surface of the front camshaft journal cap with Gasket Maker F8AZ-19B508-AB or equivalent meeting Ford specification WSK-M2G348-A5.
Inspect the oil control solenoid flange O-rings; replace as necessary.
