Default Need help with timing a '98 GT

We're new to the Mustang forum.

My son, recently, had his '98 GT heads rebuilt and is in the process of reinstalling.

What is the process for setting the timing with the 4.6 sohc engine?

Thanks.

You need to set the #1 piston at TDC and the cam gear should be a bit outside of 12 o'clock. Yes if you line up the marks on the cam gear, timing chain, and crank gear you're good.

Be sure not to rotate the cam or crank with the chains off and cam caps tight. You can bend valves that way. You need to loosen the cam, set it where it needs to be, then re-torque it.
