As it says 89 f150 help stalled rockers not moving stalled on the way to work this morning and it sounded like a timing belt does when they go .So I checked the rockers when it was being cranked Oh ya it is an inline 6 they have fiber timing gears. Anybody know if they are prone to going? Need help asap!
Thanks in advance[cheers]

Some of the 300 fords have a fiber cam gear and just stop turnin. The replacement timing sets have an aluminium cam gear.

you might want to check your compresion aswell,, you might have a bent valve aswell,,,, very hard to see without taking the valve out of the head...
