Question about 2001 Lincoln LS V8

1 Answer

How tight should I make crank pulley bolt?

Ive just finished replacing the timing chains and tensioners in my lincoln ls and everything was going great until i went to tighten my crank pulley bolt. I was using the same one i had removed and it snapped in two. Somebody told me its probably because i reused the bolt so i got another one from ford.. but i broke that one as well with the tourque wrench set at just 200 Nm. The guide ive been following tells me to make it 375 Nm which seem awfully high to me but i cant seem to find any other specs.

    Couldnt find the torque specs anywhere so i tried 100 ft lbs and felt like i could go a bit more.. Went to 120 and decided thats gotta be enough so thats still where its at. Not sure why my instructions were so far off, just happy I could get the first 2 bolts out okay. Thanks for the help!

Yes 375 Nm is excessively high, see i measure in foot pounds so i looked up the conversion which is 276 foot lbs (a lot). I did some searching and the only numbers i found where 98 ft lbs which is 132 Nm which should not shear pulley bolts. The cars manual should have the torque specifications in it. Good luck

SOURCE: How to retime a 2000 Lincoln Ls with a 3.9 v8

I have a 2004 and all the service manuals. I have never worked on this type engine,although I have been at it for 45 years,some professional,when I owned a shop. That said, I will try to answer a specific question, if I can find it for you. Short of you buying all the manuals I have or mailing you mine.

I'am looking at the Workshop Manual-it has three locations on the 3.9L, two on disassembly and one on installation. Nice pictures,and necessary stuff,but near useless. Several hundred dollars for these. Got to have them,but not helping you or anyone else.

It looks like you need to have a tool to lock the flywheel in place. eg. one of the holes the CKP Sensors scans. It's called an ignition pulse wheel. One hole is special. Turn crank 45 degrees ATDC,the crank keyway will be at 6 o'clock,install tool
Also,a tool to hold the flats on the cams, to the top
If you don't have the cam sprockets and chain on.from your head service shop,more tools.
Then you have several locking pins,like dowel pins to hold everything,while you struggle with the chain tensioners,again ,more pins

That's a start.

Other than the chain breaking? I would recommend replacing all the chains while it is apart. Also all timing chain tensioners, tension arms & guides.

I don't have an answer to why, your specific parts,wore or broke.

My 2000 linclon ls 6 cly cranks but sounds terriable just started doing it


I hope it's not the timing chain tensioner,Chris. I know the 2000 V8 engines had bad tensioners.
Could it be a loose starter or the starter drive is hanging up in the flywheel teeth?
Could it be a really bad DRIVE BELT TENSIONER or the idler pulley gone bad?
It's just difficult to say,but I hope it's not the TIMING CHAIN TENSIONERS. Lot of miles on it? don-ohio (:^)

My ls is running very rough when at stop signs and red lights and cutting off


If you are throwing a code for random misfires then your tensioners for your timing chain are going bad. You might have even jumped a tooth on your timing. Need to replace timing chain and tensioners.

How to timing the chain of nissan super saloon


you'll have to remove the serpentine belt via the tensioner pulley (usually taken off with a socket and a long breaker bar, make sure to push in the direction that would make the belt go lose then slip it off) then get a pulley puller (looks like a Y with another line going between the two upward lines, each area has an oval shaped hole in which to pun bolts to secure to the crank pulley, and one hold in the middle to feed the bolt that actually pulls the pulley off...have I said pull and pulley enough yet?) then there will be a cover underneath it that youll take off, there will be the timing chain. you should be able to remove one of the gears that go on the crankshaft or camshaft to get the chain off (its too tight and rigid to get off any other way) then slip the gear back on without a chain, and rotate both gears until two notches on the face of the gears line up. there should only be one notch on each gear. then take the gear off again, put on the new chain, bolt on the gear you took off to take off the old chain, bolt on the cover, press on the crankshaft pulley (requires specific tool) then put the serpentine belt back on (making sure it is fed through the accessories correctly such as the ac compressor, alternator, power steering pump, etc.) then use the tensioner pulley to fit the belt back on, pack up your tools, and call it a good days work.

Replacing timing belt


a 2003 chevy silverado has a timing chain. In order to change this, you will have to remove the fan and clutch, the water pump, both serpentine belts, and the crankshaft pulley. You cannot reuse the bolt for the crank pulley, so you will have to buy a new one. You will also have to replace the gaskts for the timing chain. Anyways, once those are off, you remove the cover for the timing chain, and you will be able to unbolt and remove the timing chain and sprockets. Note where everything is, so you can return it to the exact same place. Once that is done, put everything back like you saw it when you took it apart, and you should be good to go. Remember to get new gaskets for the water pump, (you should replace the thermostat while you're in there as well) and make sure your belts are in good shape. Also check your idler pulleys and tensioners to make sure they're not worn out. Good luck, and enjoy your time under the hood.

Why does the bolt on the belt tensioner turn instead of the hole tensioner move? I am replacing the alternator


Hello! It's because the bolt is also the shaft that the tensioner rides on - therefore it needs to spin freely on the bolt. Hope that makes sense, and helps!
