Question about 2001 Lincoln LS V8
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.
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

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.
