i just looked at the procedure on chilton, and it looks simple enough to me. align the copper links with the dots on the crank and cam, make sure the guides are in properly and the chain is tightened by the tensioners.

What year and is it a 4.6/5.4 2 or 3 valve? Id get tensioners too, check cam bearings/caps, while your at it do exhaust manifolds and gaskets because eventually they will leak and its hard in truck. Its pretty straight forward, roll motor over to line up dots, make sure it doesnt turn over when chains are off, (even take a pic if your not sure) and set everything back on the way it was. I like to outline a few of the gasket areas with silicone so they dont leak and make sure you torque everything to spec.

I have the complete Ford master timing tool set from Mac, that I'd actually like to sell. Most of the tools in the set have never been used. Its alot more tools then you need for this one job since it covered all Fords, but it has the tools you do need. It cost over $400, and I'm looking for $285
