Can you remove the oil cap to see if the valves are moving?

don't know where part 2 is/can be? this seems like it'd take 20 hours at least with fantastic organizational skills~

this seems like a real challenge, only for the professional, I'd lose bolts...then my mind if I had to do this...only for the bravehearts out there~ comments are interesting at the bottom accusing the removal of the windshield cowl to be a bulllshit ford waste of time...would like to do this correctly, myself....or not at all, in my case....not at all, take it to a professional who's got the stomach for this level of involvement~

no disrespect Judge..you put some effort in to this I can tell, but tenspeed has an excellent idea up there...

You cannot see the valves if you take the cap off on one of these im pretty sure not 100%. You may be able to see part of the timing chain its self and the gear on the end of the cam.

Fuel pressure would be a good thing to check.
