Installation (Models With Distributor) 1. Install crankshaft sprocket (if removed) with recessed area toward crankshaft. See Fig. 1 . Install belt guide with flat side toward camshaft sprocket. Install camshaft sprocket with timing mark outward. 2. Install NEW camshaft sprocket bolt, and tighten to specification while holding camshaft with camshaft sprocket holder. See TORQUE SPECIFICATIONS . 3. Align camshaft sprocket timing mark with pointer. Properly position crankshaft so timing mark aligns with notch in front cover casting. See Fig. 2 . Remove the distributor cap, and ensure that the distributor rotor is facing the No. 1 position. 4. Install timing belt over crankshaft sprocket, then counterclockwise over auxiliary shaft and camshaft sprockets. Loosen belt tensioner bolt, allowing tension to be applied on timing belt. 5. Remove one spark plug from each cylinder. Rotate engine clockwise (viewed from front of engine) 2 complete revolutions. Tighten timing belt tensioner bolts to specification. See TORQUE SPECIFICATIONS . Ensure all timing marks align properly. See Fig. 1 . Install belt guide on crankshaft. 6. To install remaining components, reverse removal procedure. Tighten bolts to specification. See TORQUE SPECIFICATIONS . 7. Disconnect heater hose from fitting on thermostat housing to bleed air from cooling system when filling. Fill cooling system with Ford Coolant (E2FZ-19549-AA), or equivalent, until coolant flows from fitting. Install heater hose. Refill radiator. Adjust drive belts to proper tension.

NOTE: It may be necessary to push belt tensioner against timing belt, as spring tension may not move belt tensioner against timing belt.
