Ben Smull - Cam Failure #373

new 3/17/2004

I would like to be placed in your registry.

Ben Smull
St. Francis, Kansas 67756
1997 SHO
mileage 166,782
vin# 1FALP54N3VA158674
Suffered cam gear slippage, car was sitting at house, wife went start car early in morning, at start up, made funny noise, stalled, then would not run. Diagnosed as cam gear slipped, bent valves, and broken pistons.
Short block from ford $15k, used engines running $2,250 -$4,100 depending on mileage. and those are difficult to find. I would have spent $500 to get cam gear welded if it would have prevented this!
