grabs tools and heads to Koda's house Ill rip that SOB out of there for you!
Dang sohc engines and all those chains!!

Thanks for the offer, but everything is "out" and disassembled at this point. Just a lot of parts cleaning and schlepping of parts to the machine shop to do right now. Then, based on their findings, machining, me ordering lots of parts and the OTC6488 tool. The biggest problem with this "dang" engine design is having the right side chain cassette in the rear because Ford cut corners by using the same head on both sides. The Job 2 engine makes really good power for a V6. I think in a drag race it would give my 4-dr V8 a run for its money, partially due to the truck having 4:10 diff gears. Our '01 XLT and '97 Sport SOHC's (both Job 1 engines) didn't make anywhere near as much power.
