Default e3 plugs nothing but trouble

use mc sp546 or champions --you are shooting for 60k on plugs .
Look at your ford book on your cold zone and use that snyth oil and use 1 quart marvel m oil per crankcase . change it often .

Default New year same issue

It has been awhile since my last post but I finally got the ***** to tear it down( last October- reopened in November). I noticed upon entry that the right side tensioner gasket was gone, most likely causing the slack in the chain. I replaced all the timing componence(Dorman XD phasers) and the oil pump( Melling M340HV). The truck ran great for around 50km or so, then the rattle started back up again. The spark plugs have been changed to the champion plugs last September with the Motocraft VCT solenoids . I am lost where to look next, thought about tearing it back apart but not to sure whether its worth the time and money on a guessing game that could become costly pretty quick. Could there not be enough compression in one or two cylinders to keep things in sync? Could the lash adjusters and roller followers be worn out causing not enough tension on the right cam making the chain jump? Could there be not enough torque or to much torque on the banjo bolts? Are those all possible issues causing the chain slack? I've picked up a pair of the cast iron tensioners but I have read someone else tried that, and it did not fix the issue with the chain rattle. Any advice would help to hopefully fix the issue once and for all.
Thanks again everyone

If you didn't use Ford parts... there's your problem. Time for another timing job, but with the right parts this time.

Melling is great for the pump. Dorman for anything other that easy-access sensorís is horrible. Including phasers.

The wired part is that its not throwing any codes. Canadian tire around here finally got some MMO, so i put some in and see how it goes.

Thanks for the video. My truck does not sound like that though. My main concern is whats causing the chain slack upon start up and certain times upon acceleration. The tensioners have been changed( unless these ones are bad from the factory).
thanks again everyone
