Assuming that you already removed everything in front of the gear, the first thing you are going to do is make sure that the timing marks are align with each other

4.9L engine timing gear mark alignmentFig. 2: Removing the camshaft gear from the 4.9L engine

Fig. 3: Removing the crankshaft gear from the 4.9L engine

If you notice there are two different pullers that you will need. Any other way you will damage the gears. Most car care store can loan these out. If the gears seem to be stuck lightlytap the back of the puller after applying some tension on the nut this should do the trick

The Ford F-150 Lariat has a timing chain, not a timing belt. Unlike a timing belt, there is no need to have the timing chain changed.

The timing marks on an 84 Ford Straight 6 is on the driver's side of the engine. It is above the crankshaft pulley, attached to the timing cover.

The Ford 4.9 liter ( 300 cubic inch ) straight 6 cylinder doesn't use a timing chain or timing belt , it has a gear on the end of the crankshaft that meshes with a gear on the end of the camshaft

timing should be set at 10 degrees BTDC. be sure you unplug the spout connector before you adjust the timing.

No , I believe 1987 was the first year of fuel injection on the 4.9 L straight 6 cylinder

An F150 has to have proper timing or the engine could lose power, or not run at all. Follow the specific procedure for your exact engine to check the timing.
