thanks moose

it's not hard, but good preparation is key.

as the boost guru knows, i had time to practice
removing and replacing the cam followers while
i was waiting for the cams to arrive

leaf, the timing mark isn't that important....when
you take off your RH side cam cover, you can
position the cam lobes as shown in the guide,
thus determining the initial 12 o'clock position (this
would be where the stock damper spoke would be).

the more you look at the lobes and the cam followers,
the more you will see what is happening and
why the crank and cam is set where it is
Great thanks for the info that's what I was thinking just wanted to be sure.

Default Big money for the tools...

Where can you get the tools for less than Ford charges?

I can do my own cam replacment, but, the tools are pricey.

Nice job hammy. I haven't done cams on anything but a 5.0, but I can't wait to tackle this job. Here's a big pat on the back from a fellow DIYer.
