Cloyes Timing Chain System Installation on Ford 3.5-liter and 3.7-liter DOHC V6 Engine

This technical video from Cloyes applies to all variations of the 2007 – 2017 Ford 3.5-liter and 3.7-liter DOHC V6 engines including naturally aspirated and turbo engines, in both FWD and RWD platforms. This engine is also referred to as the Ford Cyclone V6, or Ford Duratec V6. An excellent feature of this video is that the Cloyes technical support team shows how to time the engine properly without the use of the unnecessary camshaft holding tools. Most instructional guides and videos will suggest the special tools are necessary and will show the installation using these tools. Our process saves the customer time and money while still ensuring a proper installation. When servicing the timing components on engines equipped with an internal water pump, Cloyes also recommends water pump replacement.

Cloyes timing chain kit part numbers that this video applies to are: 9-4226S, 9-0738S, 9-0738SC, 9-0738SB, and 9-0738SA.
