TIMING MARKS DONT LINE BACK UP
1998 Ford Expedition • 100 miles
5.4l replaced timing chains and everything lined up. tensioners are on and looks good. I went to spin the motor by hand to see if everything lined up and when I got back to tdc, the timing marks didnt line up... is this normal.
Did you put engine no.1 piston on compression stroke/TDC and align the cam and crank correctly to its marking as indicated in the repair manual
When I put it back together yes
You sure its not on the exhaust stroke?
Yes I'm sure. its 5.4l 2 cams, 2 chains, 2 gears on crank
Did you get it running again?
