    If you're looking for help and want to draw people in who can assist you, use a descriptive subject title when posting your message. In other words, "1998 Town Car" isn't going to indicate to anybody that you need help. However, "Need help with my 1998 Town Car" will. Be as descriptive as you can. Please use common sense...

2001 Town Car engine timing gear R&I

This thread will provide the procedures to replace the timing gear components of the 1998 thru 2002 models. Earlier models have less overhang into the engine compartment so less components in the way. The 2003 and up have more overhang into the engine compartment so more components in the way. The attached procedure is the main one, and relies on sub procedures to deal with removal of the front cover and the valve covers which follow in the next post.
