Your right I have the timing tools and I used the link you gave me for settting the VCT. Started the car up last night and runs great no codes, lots of smoke at first as we burned off all the WD40 that was used getting bolts out. Thanks again for the cam and the link for setting timing you really did save me a lot of grief.
Cheers
Gerry

Thanks sleepyboy !! I'd done my timing belt on the zx3 and I was wondering if I could use the tools for my svt.

02ztsian I believe Gerry has the tools now. I was able to hook him up with an SVT intake cam so I hope things go well with the install!

GhostTribute If it is the same as the ZETEC TDC procedure. I found it pretty easy and cheap to buy some flat bar stock that is 5mm thick. Then buy an M10 x 70mm full thread bolt and 2 nuts. Measure 63.4mm from the tip of the bolt and that is where you lock two nuts together. This would allow only 63.4mm of the threaded bolt inside the block. This will hold the crank at TDC.

SBK86 I bought mine from Amazon for 20 bucks. OTC 6486 was the PN. This included the timing pin and bar.

I had initially made the mistake of asking the dealer parts department and the guy gave me a dirty look and told me they don't sell those to individuals.

dneedham Central Florida Motorsports has a good tool set for keeping the cam's in place and getting the crank to top dead center:
