I am working on a replacement 4.2 engine for my 2004 S-Type. According to all assembly instructions I have read the pin that locates in the Crank position hole sets TDC.
On this engine when the crank locating pin is in the flywheel it is 45deg off. Both front pistons are about 3/4" down the bore.
The flywheel locating pin in the end of the crankshaft is broken off.
For me to set TDC I have to.
- Set #1. piston to TDC.
- Put flywheel in position with crank locating pin in place.
- Install flywheel retaining bolts.
The keyway for the timing chain gear is in 6 o’clock position when both front pistons are 3/4" down each bore.
Is there something here that I am missing??
