Are you sure you don't need the bolt on sprockets ? If you do need bolt on sprockets just let me know, I've got a set in the garage with bolts and washers from a set of non-pi heads that I can sell ya if your interested. The only thing I think is different is that the PI heads use a different size bolt. Ask around on the board and I'm sure someone can fill ya in.

Let me know,

I'm pretty sure that all bolts, washers (spacers, actually) and sprockets are the same as I didnt have any options to guess about at the parts desk when installing some comp cams....

I am not 100% sure you can repair cams with the pressed-on sprocket, so if they are missing, you are looking at getting new cams. If you need to buy the bolt on sprocket, you cannot use the NPI parts as they are different than the PI parts!

It would appear, by the picture that the cams he has in those heads are the bolt on type, he might have had presson's before, thus needing new sprockets bolts washers and spacers....the same problem I had....when swapping cams....

this means i cannot fit my 96 npi sprockets onto the pi cams?

KrazyT; what you need to buy, is a set of sprockets, left and right, the bolt and washer for each, and a spacer sleeve, if it doesnt come with the sprocket... no mystery here.... press ons are on a hollow shaft.... bolt ons are on a machined soiid shaft .... Put the sprocket with the bump on the face on the drivers side head, bump out, so the cam position sensor can read it.....you'll need PI valve covers if you dont allready have them....it would probably be a good idea to buy new chains also, even tho' they seem to last forever, new ones will have just a bit more precision to them, and you are allready in there, so whats another hundred bucks if youve gone that far... good luck........................................ BTW, with the heads off you "could" upgrade the valve springs pretty easy, and have a bit more safety factor at higher rpms, a tad better performance... It was not fun doing that with the heads oon...

You don't need PI valve covers unless those are Windsor heads!

Forgive me if I am wrong but, if those are Comp Cams the bolt is bigger

and you need F1AZ-6A340-A Bolts from Ford Dealership.
