    I am going to be rebuilding one of my 5.4 2v motors.

    I am looking for good resources/books for the torque specs and sequence of the rebuild information.

    Thank you for all your help

    Dealer CDs are best bet, available online for around $20.00.

    You can usually find copies of the factory service manuals on ebay.

    The 5.4l has bad timing chain/tensioners(passenger side). They rattle/ make noise, from the chain rubbing on front cover. You may not need a total rebuild. The oil pan will be full of debris. The 5.4l is despised by most mechanics.

    I will definitely look into it.
    Vehicle isn’t at my house yet.

    Thank you for pointing me in the right direction.

    I was able to find a copy of the service manual on eBay.

    I got both books and a factory wiring manual with diagrams for 40 bucks.

    My son and I rebuilt the 4.6L in his 02 Mustang two years ago. Basically the same as the 5.4L. I love the modular platform. Very easy rebuilt relatively speaking. I can't exactly walk you through it, but take your time and if you're mechanically inclined you should be fine. I've rebuilt other engines so most of it I just knew, but this book helped me out quite a bit in a few spots.
