Hello,

this engine has a timing chain to keep the camshafts lined up. Check out the diagrams (Below). Please let us know if you need anything else to get the problem fixed. Cheers.

V8 four wheel drive automatic 150,000 miles.

Camshaft timing. Chilton's manual is showing a different diagram than how it was by almost 180 degrees. This is a Windsor 4.6. Do you have a diagram? Thanks
