I haven't figured out how to post PDF files yet. PM me a email address and I'll sent the Ford installation instructions to you.

Sent. In general it is a good idea to set any motor to TDC, cylinder #1. That will tell you all you would want to know with the rest of the install.

Yeah it kinda does. I believe in this position all of the cylinders are in a neutral (not all the way up or down) point in their rotation. I have not done a Head R/R on these motors. to me it wouldn't make a difference where the piston was as I rotate the engine for each cylinder before adjusting the valve for that cylinder.

[EDIT: these motors don't have an adjustable rocker arm. Looks like it's a set it and forget it deal. Roll your pushrods along a flat piece of glass to make sure they are perfectly flat. Installing bend rods will suck horsepower.]
