Default 5.4 2 valve f150 help

Has anyone on here torn down the old style 5.4 motor? I am wanting to get in there to do the timing and replace the oil pump, and I have found some great videos about those jobs, but very little about getting down into the front case! If someone was willing to give me a hand I would really appreciate it! (and provide the whiskey)

Just start peeling it like an onion. autozone/Oreilly will loan you crank puller if you need one.

Oh that makes sense! I feel like I can probably get in there and do alright, but I know it would be way faster with someone who had done it before! Itís my daily driver so I have a 48 hour time running between shifts to get it done. I appreciate the advice!

I'm in north Austin and I did those jobs on my Ford 5.8, so I have an idea of what you are facing.

Your 48 hour window for completing these jobs is a bad idea. Time limits will create stress and make you hurry, then you will make expensive mistakes.

Why do you want to do these jobs? Do you have low oil pressure and skipped timing right now that make the truck run poorly and be unreliable, or are these things that you want to do to preventative peace of mind?

Send me a PM with you phone number and we can work out the details.

They are pretty easy to work on, but it is very possible to put the timing chains back on incorrectly. But once you understand how they go on, they are pretty easy. The 4.6, 5.4 and the 6.8 V10s are all identical on the front end. The 5.4 and 6.8 blocks are a little taller, but most of the parts are the same. Even the 4V 4.6s and 5.4s, the primary chains are the same as the 2V chains, on the 4Vs, they just add the secondary chains for the exhaust cams.

I found some great resources about the timing procedure, but no one shows taking the fan and shroud and all the electronics off. The previous poster suggested I wait until I have an issue to touch anything. If it ainít broke...

my mechanic said he would rather replace the engine when it gets to that point where timing chain and associated phasers, guides, and other things need replaced.

Luckily the 2v motor doesnít have all the phasers and stuff that the 3v 5.4 does! That looks like a nightmare motor
