yes i think i was the gueni pig *sp* for that. im using a crown vic front cover for my explorer swap. just make sure the casting numbers are the same as F3AE. remember to re-use ALL your front accesories such as the tensioner, water pump, and your stock crank pulley. the one that will come with the 04 block will have f6ae on it.

I'm not sure about "new studs". I used the ones off my 97 cover. put them in the same locations as the factory did, makes bolting the p/s resevoir bracket, ground wire, and wiring harness to the motor possible. the gaskets are reuseable if they are in good shape, no rips. be extra careful when pulling the timing cover off, the gaskets like to stick were the heads meat the block (rtv was used in assembly). you may or may not have to help the gaskets off.

Are the 8 new studs really necessary for the PI swap ?? And do the timing cover gaskets need to be changed, or are they the re-useable type ??

a full gasket set from fel pro is 20$. Also, when yo pull the timing cover, draw yourself a placement diagram on a peice of cardboard and put the studs with thier hardware in the appropriate places.

Yeah I was going to get the timing cover gaskets from Ford.
Im just not sure about the studs, if they are different sizes for the new heads. I was reading the PI swap article, and it says to get them. My engine is a 1995 with 55k miles on it, so everything should still be pretty fresh, I wasnt planning on replacing the timing chains or anything else while the timing cover was off.

you dont need to change the timing cover studs, you do need to keep track of thier locations, though.

Front Seal for in the Front Cover F5AZ-6700-A
Oil Pan Gasket F4AZ-6710-A
Oil Filter Adapter Gasket F6AZ-6840-BA
all of those gaskets are re-usable but i got them anyways to swap over. i didnt however use the new front cover crank seal since mine looked pretty much new and it was on there pretty tight so you can have it for a couple of bucks + shipping. let me know

when it comes to gaskets nothing is worse then puting the engine all back to gether dropping it in gettin her going feeling good about yourself while puttin a few back and then you see the little puddle under the car and you think to yourself i am a freaking idiot 20 bucks worth of gaskets and all that time grrrr do yourself a favor and finish the project the first time use new gaskets
