Hey does anyone know if the idler shaft run off the timing chain which drives the oil pump and syncronizer are the same between au and an ef engine?

Cheers brad?

if your talking about the aux shaft?

the sump needs to be removed ,the harmonic balancer needs to be removed, the timing chain tensioner removed, timing case needs to be removed, the timing chain needs to be removed, the aux shaft chain gear needs to come off, then there are 2 small hex key bolts that hold the retainer plate that need to be removed, then you just pull the shaft out....

aslong as you fit the gear from the au oil pump drive to the ef cas you should be fine..

and afaik the aux shafts are not available new aftermarket. so its second hand only.. the thing you got to worry about now is all the fine metal has now been curculating through your oil pump and the rest of the engine, so if you fix the shaft, the oil pump and bottom end bearings will be next....

yeah i suppose, i could flush the engine out a few times put a new filter and clean out then run for a few kms then repeat, while its all apart i could inspect the oil pump and replace if needed.

but i do have this ef block now half built here i suppose i could finish it and put that engine in, sounds more feasible

or
i'll just put another gear on the synchronizer shaft so it will work for 20km and sell it with a driveway warranty,

Do the job properly, it's a Ford not a bloody Merc.

my work would make you cry, it must be the king of dodgeys, and i do all my work properly tyvm,

i havent had that many cars come back,

i need to visit my mums more often and build that engine.

in regards to timing chain, can they be purchased new or anything?

also what would be better to run on that block the ef head or an au head?

Timing chains are obsolete from Ford.
