Timing chain diagram

  • 2000 LINCOLN LS

Six cylinder two wheel drive automatic 102,000 miles.

I am looking for a timing chain diagram to show the marks on the gears for the Lincoln LS 3.0 Duratec. I have one for the Taurus 3.0 Duratec but it does not seem right. I bring the number one piston to TDC and the crank gear is at 11:00 position. When I place the cams with the marks as they are shown in the diagram for the Taurus 3.0 Duratec engine, the exhaust valves hit the piston on the left hand side of the engine. The engine is on a stand and I do not force the cams around to avoid damaging the valves. Do you have a diagram of timing marks for the Lincoln LS 3.0 Duratec 2000? Thanks.

Do you

Hello,

CAUTION:Rotating the crankshaft in a counterclockwise direction may cause engine damage. Crankshaft journals are directionally machined. Rotating the crankshaft counterclockwise can raise burrs on bearing surfaces, reducing engine life. Verify that the crankshaft keyway is in the nine o'clock position.

Caution:The crankshaft key-way must remain in the nine o'clock position until the cams are located, or damage to the valves may occur. Rotate the left hand and right hand intake and exhaust camshafts to locate them in their neutral positions.
