Matt Wilgers -  Cam Failure #785

New 3/14/07

I had a cam failure about 1 month after buying the car. It had a cadent tap when I bought it used. The dealership (yes, an actual Ford dealership) told me that it was nothing to worry about, and it was just a worn cam chain tightener. After my engine "died", I discovered v8sho.com. I have a new engine from a 96 now. I rarely drive it, as I just discovered someone in South Dakota that might weld my cams, and don't want it to fail before I get it done.

By the way, if you use a 96 engine in a 97, be sure to swap the wiring harness and sensors, as they are not the same.

If you need any pictures of my original engine, or any parts, let me know.
