Question about 2000 Lincoln LS
I have a 2000 Lincoln LS with a 3.9 V8 engine the timing chain broke on the secondary chain.I removed the head and had it all checked for damage,lucklly it was ideling when it broke and caused no damage to any internal parts.After replacing the head and buying new chains and guides along with tensioners I have found that noone knows how this thing times.How do I find out this worlds most sought after question.
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.
