    This is on a 2007. Anyone tackle one before? It is internal and driven by the timing chain so it is going to stink.

    About the only advice I can give is to check FordTechMakuloco's YouTube channel. He's really good at explaining things, and the video description usually includes the parts (including part numbers and links to buy them) and special tools you need for the job.

    When we did the timing set on the truck my brother bought, we used FordTechMakuloco's videos. The video descriptions even included part numbers for things like the cam lock and the Melling oil pump, as well as a pdf of a diagram of the torque sequence for the timing cover.

    Ouch! It books at 13.5 hours. You may need to make something to hold the cams at TDC, like a flat piece of metal. Have fun and tell us how close you get to 13.5.

    Do a search first, and if you can't find a solution then post your problem.

    Lots of guys there know their stuff, and will help you step-by-step if necessary. :drunk2:

    Ford has holding tools for the 5.4, so I'd guess they have the same for the Duratecs.

    Are you a mechanic? Only reason I ask is the book hours as in can anyone find those or just mechanics.

    AllDataDIY (AllDataDIY.com) shows the book hours for procedures. It also shows the manufacturer's procedures, torque specs, special tools, etc. IIRC, it's $25/year for the first car, then a reduced rate for any additional cars you want to add.

    Yes, I am a mechanic, but I don't pay a subscription. I have access to AllData that goes up to 2011.

    Nice, I am sitting here right now just dreading this job. I have not done an internal one before so I need to watch some videos on how to do it. At least learn a few tricks to make it easier.

    I already have that many or more just is procrastination and dread. :) I will time the actual labor.
