anyone have a good write up on the replacement of the front timing chain, hopefully with some pictures? it's for a 2001 sport trac 4x4

also, what are all the parts needed? i'm only doing the front right now because there is a rattle coming from the chain. i was looking at this kit on ebay(yes i am going the cheap route, that's the way it has to be right now) :

http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/FORD...s?hash=item45edf3d7d2&_trksid=p4506.m20.l1116

so i would need 2 of these to do the front, correct? any additional parts needed for the front?

Misleading listing!! All of the engines listed for the application are OHV engines. The Trac has the SOHC .........

good call, almost missed that.

do i need any special tools? timing chain gasket, or will rtv work? i hear the timing chain rattle is pretty common with these trucks, is it usually that the tensioner is bad or something else?

and again, any write up with pictures would be great.

thanks
