    its all about time , cause its money. nice own

    Horrible setup and design, designed to fail if a do it yourselfer creates this problem? Ehh, could be.

  3. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars t bree says:

    Wow ! Another Ford better idea ! That is the dumbest thing I have seen since pressed cam lobes !

  4. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars DrFrankensteins Creations says:

    That is the stupidest design I've ever seen, and I've seen some winners.

    Ford couldn't spend 10 cents on a woodruff key

  6. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Michael Hart says:

    Again I know its an old video but I feel ur pain on stuff like this 😔.

  7. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Ken Smith says:

    My dad had expectations of me being a mechanic! Ha ha ha ha no!

  8. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Grumpy says:

    That is the biggest pile of engineering dumbs ever! Such a critical part of the engine's being should always be secured using the most foolproof methods ever, either a keyway or a dowel 😳

  9. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars John McBride says:

    So he made the mistake and you got recruited to fix it? Did he get in “trouble “

  10. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Wayne Irvine says:

    Is that correct? The connection between the crank and the cams is a friction fit on an interference engine? No keyway?

    Ford do some really weird things for a company with over 100 years of making cars but this ridiculous.

  11. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Joe Seabert says:

    Wow, that engine comes out that easy?

  12. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Joe Seabert says:

    I had a bad radiator leak and failed to maintain water volume and caused the lifters to fail. So I took the engine apart and in the process decided to change out the cam and gears. I lined up the cam 180 degrees off and had to replace both heads. It cost me over $1000 in parts to fix.

  13. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars The Missile says:

    is it just me or was it a bad idea for them to use this timing method on a damn interference engine

  14. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Jeremy Covelli says:

    Why does that sprocket not have a keyway, spline, or bolts? Is there even a timing mark on there? The only person at fault here is the idiot who designs this ford junk.

  15. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars LINE COOK DAN says:

    Fuckin new guy

  16. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Qusin111 says:

    The only mistake here is the engineering that went into this design

  17. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Michael J Terrizzi says:

    LOL, snap-on ratchet with a pittsburgh socket. reminds me of my own toolbox.

  18. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars G R says:

    Wow……go Ford on that design.
    Who in the hell decided that was a good idea? (No keyway)
    Tech screwed up yes….but ford screwed up worst.

  19. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Alan Earnest says:

    Some of the older mopars did that with the cam gear

  20. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Granite American says:

    there is a high pitched noise in the beginning of this video.

  21. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars S.A. Smith says:

    Ford ecoboost engines are a pain to work with. As a Ford Focus ST MK3 owner, I can attest to that. You either need special tools specific for this engine to time it up once the tension is removed from the chain or you gotta try and stop anything from moving while you do what you need to do as some of the parts don't have key ways to pin them dead still.

    Jigsaw and some 1/2 inch thick board can get you a useable jig though…even if it's bodge it stops things moving.

  22. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Gene Renshaw says:

    I hope your apprentice knows how fortunate he is to be trained by you. Not only the technical portion of your profession, but the ethics of doing the right thing even when it hurts. I commend you for portraying scriptural lessons in business.

    Why am I not surprised to see yet ANOTHER idiotically engineered Ford engine? There was a time when Fords were absolutely fine. 2000 and older Fords are generally pretty good… Certainly no worse than anything else. Somewhere along the line Ford must have decided to hire the dumbest f'ing engineers on the planet because they have been pure shit for the past 2 decades. They screwed up spark plugs TWICE on the Triton V8 as well as a few other issues with that engine. The 6.0 and 6.4 powerstroke diesels are garbage. The Ford Escapes have cylinder block failure consistently and as early as 10K miles. And now one of their geniuses came up with another one of Ford's better ideas and chose to NOT have a keyway in the crankshaft and timing gear to index the valve timing? This idiocy can be the result of only to things. Either Ford did this on purpose to discourage people from taking their piles of shit anywhere besides the dealership for service, or likening the engineer's mental acuity to a box of rocks is an insult to a box of rocks. Ridiculous B.S. like this is exactly why I'll never own a Ford newer than 2000, and to be honest, there's no reason to own one newer than 1980 at this point because a '66 or '76 Ford truck is MUCH better looking than a '96 Ford anything. I don't see Ford getting any better because there are legions of fools who will buy them no matter how bad Ford makes them, and judging by the past 20 years, there's no floor.

  24. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Jos de Koning says:

    What moron designed it like this???

  25. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars BuzzLOLOL says:

    I'll think of this next time Ford says it "has a better idea" !!! This is INSANE! Timing chain sprocket held in time by merely FRICTION instead of a keyway!

  26. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Robert Cunningham says:

    Send it to the I Do Cars channel guy so we can watch him pull it apart.😁

  27. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars YHRIM says:

    Its bad enough that nearly all engines now are "engineered" to be interference… but this one takes the cake. That is the worst engine timing design I've ever seen.

  28. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Carey Frisch says:

    I once R & R'd engine timing gears in a Pontiac V-8 in 1975. The OEM's were made of plastic and wore down but no engine damage occurred. I replaced them with metal ones and the Chilton's reference manual showed the timing marks lining together in the middle. Mission accoumphlished and the Pontiac ran great. About a month later, another Pontiac came in (it was a model year newer than the previous one). It too required R & R of the worn plastic timing gears. Did the same procedure as the first Pontiac except this time the car wouldn't start and only backfired. After thinking about this problem for several hours while scratching most of my body parts, I returned to the Chilton's manual and looked up the procedure for this newer Pontiac V-8. Turned out that Pontiac made a design change and the timing gear marks were to be installed at opposite ends and not together. Who would have thunk! Henceforth, I checked Chilton's whenever I worked on a vehicle I was unfamilar with.

    Dammit Jim bib not read the manual before before I jumped into it. MY Bad 😞😞😞😞😞

  31. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Hola! mark friedem says:

    50 yrs ago, when I was apprenticing in my grandfather's garage, I was given the task of a simple sparkplug change. An insulator broke, and the terminal fell down inside the plug hole. Not knowing the catastrophe this would cause, I went about my business. Only when I started the car did I get the scolding of a lifetime. That little piece of metal seized up the engine and my grandfather had to pay out for a rebuild

  32. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Greg Winfield says:

    Hard to believe something as important as that is held on by interference fit. When these engines get old and wear it will slip and as an interference design destruction will result. Built in obsolescence. That should be keyed at a minimum Ray.

  33. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Bruce McGee says:

    Terrible design. I'm sorry that you had to buy an engine.

  34. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars David Johnson says:

    Engine design to save maybe one dollar is just stupid. WHY WHY WHY. Planed failure.

  35. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Liam Ruffino says:

    No key way , is floating crank, needs to be all locked up before removal of harmonic balancer

  36. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars M Neale says:

    I have to agree with many on this & state that "Yes engineering a method of making something cheaper does not always make it Better" Some things are progressed past the need….. ? Maybe?? <<Just_Saying>>

  37. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars TechLife says:

    Very odd that interference engines don't have a key when the consequence of wrong timing is so drastic.

  38. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Runner Fore says:

    So I'm the only one that heard the dog whistle the entire video 😭

  39. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Henrique Cardoso says:

    400 bucks for a full running ford engine, what a deal

  40. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars subbuilder says:

    Wow. A $400 engine.

  41. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars subbuilder says:

    Honesty. I may be angry at what you did, but We can correct the problem.

  42. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars M Moser says:

    Any design that is built and does not fail to a "safe state" is poor design.

  43. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars David P says:

    Why on earth would you design such a key system to be able to slip like that? Its held in place by the pulley? Seems like a dumb design to not be keyed.

  44. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Danger Bear says:

    That sucks. Crap like this is why I got out of working on cars.

  45. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Curt Brown says:

    I remember the days when the engine and came out the top you had room removed the hood pull her up out now you got to do this crap engineers they should work on their own s*** see what they think then

  46. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Curt Brown says:

    It was a mistake you owned up to it you took care of the customer I would be back again even if it was my car cuz then I know you're not lying and I'm not trying to screw you over s*** happens

  47. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Jeffrey Weinzierl says:

    Ford and Mazda don't use a keyed crank gear or balancer. Valve spring pressure on the cam can effectively turn the camshafts when the balancer is removed without even touching the crank.

  48. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars NO Name says:

    Never buy or own a damned Ffffffffford. Anyone remember how you had to reach across the steering wheel to hold the gear shift lever in park so you could start the car? That took them years to fix.
    Bought a new 87 T-Bird once, my wife was the bookkeeper at the Ford dealership otherwise she'd would have been driving a chevy to work, after a few years I decided to replaced the belts and hoses. My buddy owned a NAPA store so I went to him for my parts. He said the heater hose was a dealer item only. So i go to the dealer and they tell me the FoMoCo parts system said "improvise". Ford didn't offer a heater hose with two 90* bends two inches apart!
    The power window motor went out, had to drill a hole in the door where the factory had dimpled the metal to get a socket to a nut on a stud….this was the official Ford procedure. Once i reinstalled the door panel half the hole was exposed.
    The AC compressor went out for the second time just out of warranty. Ford knew the system was crap and devised an entire new kit, the dealer would sell it to me at cost, $1000, I said hell no. The kit included every thing, brackets, belts, compressor, condenser and dryer….They really made some shitty cars in those days

    I will never own another Ford product.
