Subject: Ticking 97 SHO


The ticking has just started on my 97 SHO. I just listened to the clips of the problem and I?ll be damned it is the same thing. What should I do? Park the damn thing right now and get it down to FPS in Douglasville, GA? My SHO has 147, 821 miles on it. I have put about 300 miles on it since that damn ?ticking? started. I guess I SHOULD NOT TAKE THE CHANCE ON DRIVING IT DOWN THERE HUH? It is about 120miles. I will probably just go rent a Tow Bar and Haul it in. What do you estimate with the ticking just starting that I will get away with only needing the cams welded? I look forward to your reply.

Best Regards,
Robby Adams

P.S. Daytime Email (I am chomping at the bit here man!!!!)

Disconnect the battery and put it in your bedroom. Do not turn the key on that motor again. Get in touch with Doug immediately and trailer it down to his shop. The next bump of the engine could very well be it's last. Doug will get you back in great shape for not much more than a good set of tires, which you can buy later.

Also fill out this form for me answering the 17 questions and send back to me when you can.

Give Doug my regards. http://www.v8sho.com/SHO/NewGuyorRecentCamFailure.htm
Don't forget to send me a post FPS cam weld experience email so I can keep up with the cam weld experiences for Doug.
