Installing a Ford Cam Sensor ( Cam Syncronizer) without the special tool.

This being the only time I will probably ever install one of these, I just could not justify the cost of the special tool. Knowing it was essentially a distributor that told the PCM when the engine was at top dead center, I used a little common sense and another Ford, that uses the same sensor, to verify.

Installing a Ford Synchronizer
Ford Camshaft synchronizer's are a common failure. Some techs aren't familiar with them so they may not be comfortable with them. Unfortunately the service manuals aren't very clear in describing the install process. I've made this video to help you understand them, and show how to properly install them.

How to replace camshaft synchronizer 02 Ford Taurus
This is a video I made to help people with replacing a camshaft synchronizer, this is the first real how to video I've made, comment with questions at the end when I mention the check engine light, it's only to indicate this was done correctly, otherwise you will get an engine light because the timing will be off. This car didn't have an engine light before or after this job, only the loud noise also at 4:24 I hold up the new one and call it the new sensor, I meant to say "new part"

Ford Ranger Camshaft Synchro Replacement part 2
A bad camshaft synchro was driving me nuts with it's chirping and recently was causing some bucking/missing from the engine at high rpms. There was a TSB on this...google it, it's there (search for "ford 3.0L cam synchronizer tsb"). This worked out well for me, but I'm not a mechanic. I have no professional mechanical training. So, embark on this task at your own risk. I will not be held responsible if you screw something up on your vehicle. There's your disclaimer...you have been warned.

My main point here is that if you have a performance problem and you're going to throw parts at the problem start with the basics before you to off and start replacing sensors that you suspect are a problem, if you don't have evidence of a faulty sensor then don't start there start with the simple tune up items and check for vacuum leaks and air leaks as I've shown here and I believe you'll have better results and save yourself some money in the process. In short the rule of KISS applies, Keep It Simple Stupid.

There was some confusion about the 15% mark to stab the synchronizer. This should explain it and eliminate the confusion.

1927 Ford: Double-Trouble -- /BIG MUSCLE
Owner: • Gordon Tronson In the world of hot-rodding there are few cars that are going to leave as big an impression as this - the 1927 Ford Model T custom simply known as "Double-Trouble". It rides on a custom-built tube chassis that's fabricated from 1.5-inch tube. Is powered by two 4.6-liter modular V8s from Ford with four, count 'em, FOUR Superchargers for an approximate power output of around 1,200 hp. It also utilizes the rear-end (inboard disc brakes and all) from an early Jaguar. It's a rolling a Hot Wheels car and a masterpiece of engineering that is sure to make all your naughty bits tingle.
