Download NOTE:Ford does not provide camshaft gear timing marks, or information to perform timing belt service without the special tools shown in this procedure. Special Service Tools: Timing Tool, Camshaft Alignment T94P-6256-CH Timing Peg, Crankshaft Position T97P-6000-A Cam Sprocket Holding/Removing Tool T74P-6256-B CAUTION: The maximum amount by which the engine management system will adjust the camshaft timing (VCT control unit) is limited to two degrees. As a result of this an extremely high degree of accuracy is required for any work which affects the valve timing. Note: The locations of engine mountings and engine support insulators are described looking from the transaxle to the engine. Note: Operation steps which only apply to certain model variants and therefore do not apply to all vehicles are clearly marked with the statement (if necessary). Installation
