can i do it with just hand tools or do i need a compressor.. i have springs too
If you mean an air compressor, you'd only need it for the crank bolt. Everything else all you need is hand tools and possibility the ford valve spring compressor unless you plan on having a really hard time :p And you definitely want to degree the cams!

okay thanks that's what I was looking for.. what about degreeing them? I need to buy some gears for them
Summit you can order the degree kit from, get a dial indicator extension and you don't need new cam gears you can file the stock keyway and shift the cam around till you get the intake centerline

As for the air compressor to hold the valve up, I believe you could rotate the engine till the piston is all the way up the cylinder and have enough room to slip the retainer clips on...
