1996 Ford F800 5.9L hydromax brake system VIN: 1FDPF82C5T

2002 Lincoln Town Car 4.6L ps pump VIN: 1LNHM82WO3
The pump did indeed have low pressure. Max pressure as reflected here was supposed to be 1200-1400 psi and this pump maxed out at 460psi. A replacement pump corrected the low pressure and also the groaning steering problem.

2004 Lincoln Aviator 4.6L timing chain VIN: 5LMEU56H84
I was able to do the chain without removing the followers. The cam tool worked well it would be better to have two holders because if you release it when it is not connected it will rotate. We had hold one side by hand while the other side was done.
