tukaniSVT I would use the one that benjaminj6 found.

It is the Ford Manual one specifically for the SVT Focus.

I went ahead and added it to the How-To Archive as well.

Thanks, benjaminj6. For finding it online.

this is actually incorrect, there is an extra step to set the VCT gear once the camgear is locked into it's correct location.

There is someone on FJ that is finishing up editing of a video HOW-TO for SVT's specifically......

The member that wrote this thread has done over 20 timing belt swaps on SVT's and is pretty much the godfather of successfully DIY'ing your own belt change

I just love to know how things work.
It uses an electric solenoid to feed engine oil from the top end into the VCT unit and adjust the advance of the cam.

How does the VCT work on the svt zetec and does it advace and retard both intake and exhaust?
Vct is only on the intake cam.

02fordsvt It's just the intake. That's about all I know about it.

There is a specialty tool that holds the cam gear in place without damaging it.
