Install rotating assembly, oil pump, thrust washer, chain, guide, tensioner and insert crank pin.

Rotate till piston 1 is at TDC and crank stops on the pin

Install oil pan without moving rotating assembly.

Install head, studs, gasket and buckets. If not changing valves or doing a valve job install buckets exactly where they came out and you should be good. All others get the feeler gauges ready.

Loosen phaser bolts in a vise but make sure to mark cam position with phaser. Use a scribe or marker. use assembly lube on the buckets and journals and drop cams in with cylinder 1 lobes in this position

Install and tq cam caps per manual then install timing tool. It will only go in 1 way and will not go in if cams are not in the right position.

Now remover phasers and change the thrust washers behind them I used new bolts also. Only hand tight

Now install the tensioner, guides and chain. Try and keep the marks on your cams and phasers lined up after you pull the pin on the tensioner. You dont want any slack on the chain between the phasers. The manual says nothing about this but if you move the phasers together back and forth slightly while still loose the tensioner will actually pop out another tooth and remove all slack from the timing chain. At that point tighten the phasers making sure to keep them in line with your marks and make sure the crank is still at TDC and against the pin. I've been told that the phasers dont have to be exactly where they were prior to taking it apart. I'm sure it's true but I just wanted them as close as possible.

When everything is tight your cams should be in this position

Now install the timing cover, thrust washer and pulley. Thread the 6mm bolt to the timing cover to hold pulley in place. Keep all timing tools in. Tq the new pulley bolt to spec making sure to use a strap wrench so you dont break the crank pin and have to take the motor apart to remove it.

Now install the crank sensor with alignment tool and your done. Remove all timing tools and you should be good.

Engine building\rebuilding is one of the skills I'd like to acquire sometime in the future :) Great write up!
Engine building is like cooking, follow the instructions and you'll come out great.

Experience will get you to excellence, like a master chef who cooks by feel.

Great Job! Timing jumped on my ecoboost, needed reassurance on correct alignment of the cams, your photos allowed me to realign, and ease my mind on the procedure. Thanks
