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.

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.

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.

I have a copy of the Ford Assembly manual for the 2.0EB in pdf form if anyone needs it.��
Has all torque specs listed as well.
Can I haz? I won't be building anytime soon, but I can't pass up the opportunity to get a useful piece of literature for the job.
