Wow a real engine built by proper craftsman in dagenham ,well the head bolts are around 70 lbs ,tappet settings 12 inlet and 15 exhaust unless its the Gt version then they were wider but clacked like hell so fit a standard cam ,2.0 engine is valve free so if belt snaps you do not damage the valves ,timing for unleaded fuel which these engines will run on is about 6? static .timing marks are easy to see ,These engine are stelite coated valves and seats so even 1972 engine one the first engines will run on unleaded fuel .engine oil use shell rotella diesel /petrol as this was used on all ford engines in the assembly plant .Another tip use the 98 octane fuel as they were designed to run on 4 star petrol which was 97 octane .points gap 25th and plug gaps 25 as well ,cannot seem to remember the firing order though ,old age comes to us all iam afraid but i think it was 1243 but it could have been 1342 ,i should know i fitted enough plug leads in my time .
