You need a shop manual to get the proper timing info. Basically, you are timing the camshaft with the crankshaft so the valves open & close at the proper time. If you are off, the engine will run poorly and you might even cause the valves to hit the pistons and cause severe engine damage.

2001 Focus zx3 rear brakes- pads or drums???

If they look like a smaller version of your front brakes where you can see the disc (should be shiny on the side of the disc where the pad touches the rotor) then you have disk brakes.

If it's all black, or all kinda of rusted looking and all you see is a "cap" over everything behind the rim, then it'll be a drum...

95% of the zx3's have drums
only 5% of zx3's had discs. The ones that have disc brakes, also came with traction control as part of the package.
