If it was running fine before you disassembled it... before replacing the chain guides, then go back and find your error! Confirm EVERYTHING has been indexed correctly. That 4.6 is a simple basic engine. .Check for a square wave signal from the CKP without a crank signal the EEC unit cant control anything.

The guy is probably not going to know the difference between a square wave and a hole in the ground. Sometimes we just get too technical on this forum. Ford's overhead cam engines are a bit tricky to time without the proper tools. Also if you get the cam timing off and try to start the engine, valves will be bent.
