SVT Timingbelt (stuff youll need)

Alright guys just got done doing the timing belt (water pump was done last week) today on my 03 svtf. I wanted to let you all know about some stuff that u will need if you decide to tackle this on ur own. First comes first download the damn pdf for the svtf specific (still floatin here somewhere) and read it over, also u need the ford zetec timing tools *that is a must* Hopefully this may help someone cut there time way down and prepare for the job!

Sizes for everything:
Sparkplugs: 5\8
Valvecover: 8mm
Coolant reservoir: 8mm
Waterpump pulley: 10mm
Tensioner: stock15mm/nonstock 14mm
Idler: 13mm
Crank pulley: 19mm
Motormount: 19mm/15mm
Motormount studs: e10
Upper timing cover: 8mm
Middle timing cover 13mm/t45
Lower timing cover: 8mm
Crank blanking plug: 13mm
Timing tensioner: 10mm/6mm hex
Timing idler: 15mm
Intake cam: 1 1/16 open end wrench
Exhaust cam: 1 1/8 open end wrench
Intake cam plug: t55
Intake cam bolt: e18
Exhaust cam bolt: t55

*Tips and Tricks:

On some factory crank pulleys and all aftermarket crank pulleys that are billet aluminum u will need to use heat to separate it, heat the face of it and it will come lose.

When u set ur motor at tdc before taking tension off ur belt with the crank timing pin in ur cams will be off guaranteed. Dont worry this is normal as we have a damn clutch mech on the intake side. Which is why we have to loosen the gears.

The cam timing plate is machined to such a toleance that it is very tight going in the ends, it does not just simply just slide in and out and u will have to use the open end wrench on the intake cam also sometimes on the exhaust cam as well to line it up.

Get the Exhaust Cam Bolt replacement (Maybe CFM or Massive?). I did and even if I never change the timing belt again I know that I won't have to mess around with that shallow azz Torx fitting.
