Some of you know that all year long Iíve be messing with my truck.
transmission swap
PI Heads
Just problem after problem so here is the short version.
timing guide failed causeing a valve to get bent which then cause cylinder washout because the fuel never burned again in that cylinder.
So here we are.

I pulled my old engine to pillage the new timing set, PI heads, water pump, head bolts and gaskets. Im gonna warranty the head bolts and gasket so they will be fresh.

Got this bad boy from a 05 F150. My neighbor told me when i 1st got it just slap that bad boy in but i said hell no and tore it down and found it had THE EXACT SAME PROBLEM AS MY ENGINE.

Here is the 05 motor torn down so i can check all the endplay. Luckily the endplay was fine so i dont have to burn another 1300 buck at the machine shop.

Here is my 02 motor right meow waiting to be torn down. Im gonna frankenstien the 2 motors together. To make one good one.

The 05 4six isn't a 3V for the 150's.

Brass Plugs makes it look like a race engine.



Cleaned up the intake manifold and timing cover. The timing cover is on top of the intake manifold.

Just dropped off the pistons to be assembled. $90 to put the pistons on the connecting rods and for the bolts that go on the connecting rod caps. Swung by pepboys and got the Ford Corporate Blue for the valve covers and got the main rear seal.
