He is using the spring compressor. There is no better guide than Hammeron's here on the site. Pretty sure its a sticky in the tech section. I used that when I installed a set of hotrods and it was spot on.

I'm about to head out to eat but I'll definitely read it when I get back!


edit: I'm sitting here waiting so I looked for the thread and couldn't find any posts by hammeron. If you know where it's located it would be a big help.


edit: never mind, found it while looking at s197forum. lol.


edit again: Here is the link: http://mustangforums.com/forum/gt-s1...ion-guide.html

However, he uses the valve spring compressor as well.

Really? Bush

All you have to do is back the cam caps off to the point where you can fish out the 3 non loaded followers when the motor is at the 12:00 position

The cam caps are the things holding the cam in place, right? I'm not sure which 3 followers to pull but i'll look when I get back.

The non-loaded followers should be the ones not engaged by a cam lobe.

Okay. Going from Hammeron's install, it would be these then, for the right side?

Quote:
RH SIDE: Using the Valve Spring Compressor, remove
the 3 camshaft roller followers, shown in the illustration.


CAUTION: Do not allow the valve keepers to fall off the valve or the
valve may drop into the cylinder.

NOTE: The camshaft roller followers must be installed in their
original locations. Record camshaft roller follower locations.

NOTE: It may be necessary to push the valve down while compressing
the spring.

Looks right. In the pic all three lobes are pointing away from the cam.

I'm on my phone so my searching capabilities are limited but the three lobes that aren't pushing on a valve?

Sounds good! I just talked to a buddy who has done this before and is gonna help me do it. I feel a lot more secure having someone experienced there with me.
