Ford 3V Tools - Triton 4.6, 5.4 & 6.8 3 Valve

Ford 3V Tools - Triton 4.6, 5.4 & 6.8 3 ValveFord 3V specialty tools are needed in many instances to deal with broken spark plugs, damaged spark plug threads, compressing valves (for servicing cylinder heads) etc. Even a special tool for preventing the timing chain from falling inside the timing cover, can save a great deal of time when pulling a head. The application chart below is for all Ford Triton 3 Valve engines which use the infamous PZT 2FE (which crosses over to a Champion 7989 one piece design). An interesting side note. When doing this article, I thought the Avanti listed with a Ford 4.6 engine was a mistake... To my surprise, it was accurate. The now, no longer produced Avanti did use the Ford platform in 06 and 07. 


Our Most Popular Ford 3 Valve Specialty Tools

TIME-SERT 3221 - Spark plug thread insert kit for the problem of stripped, damaged or missing threads.

TIME-SERT 32214 - Used with the 3221 kit above.

Lisle 65600 - Broken 3V spark plug extractor, for the issue of broken spark plugs left remaining in the head.

OTC6900 - 9/16 spark plug socket. This is a spark plug socket that has the extension built-on. Perfect length and it's solid design prevents movement within the tool assembly.

Rotunda 303-1039 - Ford dealer specific three valve spring compressor, the same one that Ford dealerships use when servicing valves/heads.

Rotunda 303-1175 - Ford dealer specific timing chain wedge, the one the Ford dealers use for preventing the chain from falling down inside the cover when removing/replacing the head.

Calvan 39300 - Ford 3V spark plug insert kit, made by Horizon tools for installing replacement spark plug inserts.

Calvan 39100 - Broken spark plug remover, for removing broken spark plugs. This method is the same as Ford's 303-1203 with a lower cost.

Calvan 39200 - Porcelain remover, used with the 39100 above. Again this tool implements Ford's design at a cost savings.

HeliCoil 5396-16 - This is also a spark plug insert kit for replacing threads for the spark plug hole in the cylinder head.
