Question about Ford Taurus

1 Answer

The tool that tightens the spring down for installation has left me about three inches shy of the point of attachment. What do I need to do? The compression tool I have available are single hook attachment on either end opposed to the one I've used had two hook attachments on top and a single attachment on the bottom side. Does the difference in tools make me unable to complete the task at hand?

  8. Install both secondary chains onto the idler sprocket. Align two plated links on the secondary chains to be visible through the two lower openings on the idler sprocket (4 o'clock and 8 o'clock). Once the secondary timing chains are installed, position special tool 8429 to hold chains in place for installation.
  9. Align primary chain double plated links with the timing mark at 12 o'clock on the idler sprocket.
  10. Align the primary chain single plated link with the timing mark at 6 o'clock on the crankshaft sprocket.
  11. Lubricate idler shaft and bushings with clean engine oil. NOTE The idler sprocket must be timed to the counterbalance shaft drive gear before the idler sprocket is fully seated.
  12. Install all chains, crankshaft sprocket, and idler sprocket as an assembly . After guiding both secondary chains through the block and cylinder head openings, affix chains with a elastic strap or equivalent. This will maintain tension on chains to aid in installation. Align the timing mark on the idler sprocket gear to the timing mark on the counterbalance shaft drive gear, then seat idler sprocket fully . Before installing idler sprocket bolt, lubricate washer with oil, and tighten idler sprocket assembly retaining bolt to 25 ft. lbs. (34 Nm). NOTE It will be necessary to slightly rotate camshafts for sprocket installation.
