    I'm at 166,000 miles and haven't touched mine. It is making me nervous though, so I may look into the kit this spring.

    Ford timing chains are replace when needed. You'll be able to know when by a clattering on start up, that means the chain has begun to eat through the cassettes.

    Thanks! I have been stressing about that lately. Now I'll only stress at start-up...;)

    They are not interference engines.
