2003 ford explorer 4.6l
I just bought a used 2003 Ford explorer w/ a 4.6L SOHC 2V - Vin Number W (Romeo MI. Plant)
I Have to replace Timing Chain, guides, Tensioners. Also, need the Cam holding tools, Camshaft positioning adaptor, Crankshaft positioning tool, I think. I Looked all over Amazon for these Parts and Tools for the Romeo tools and can't seem to find them. The Windsor seems to be available, are they the same? I'm a little low on the coin so I want to use my Amazon credit but don't want to order the wrong parts and tools.
Can anyone help me find the Timing Chain tools and Part Numbers I need for this Romeo Manufactured Abortion of an engine. I've had three explorers, a 96 and 2 98's with the 5.0L and never had a problem, nothing like this anyway.
Thanks in advance...
PS I also need Gaskets for the intake manifold and the rest of this leaking sludge Mobile. Peace!
