There seems to be about 1 mm clearance on one of the rockers so the
valve lifter is probably damaged. Probably inlet manifolds have to be
removed in order to get the lifter out. There's not too much space
above the manifolds. Any ideas how to make it easier to remove
manifold ? Is there an easy way to somehow tilt engine slightly
downwards or some way to get more space to work on upper engine
Workshop manual does not tell that heads should be removed.
According to fordpartswarehouse, there's quite a difference 3.0 and
4.0 valve lifter pricing
Valve lifters, aerostar - 3.0l - 3.0L 92-97 $18.54 $15.01
Valve lifters, aerostar - 4.0l - 4.0L 92-97 $50.86 $41.17
Is it so that 3.0 is w/out and 4.0 with rolls ?
In any case, any ideas how to make more workspace above the engine
would be helpful, even one inch might help a lot.
