When searching for 2.0 engine, Car-Part shows DONT REMOVE HARMONIC BALANCER ON THESE.

Whats up with the harmonic balancer?

Side note i have multiple $125 engines on car part near me. a few under 100k. crazy cheap.

There are no keyways on the cam gears or the crankshaft. Ford uses diamond encrusted washers instead. If you break the crankshaft bolt loose and rotate the engine you will lose the cam timing and possibly bend the valves as it is an interference engine.

thank you, and that sounds insane, i guess its a good thing the motors are cheap.

Now i'm interested in how to set the timing on these, i'll go check that out in the manual.
