MARK 99STS Posted July 12, 2005 Report Share Posted July 12, 2005 Well after all this time and effort, my motor is toast. The performance shop that put the motor back together forgot to tighten down the cam caps on the back head and after about 10 miles the caps let loose and the cams slamed into the valve cover carving a 1/4 inch notch in the underside of the cover sending shavings all thru the motor. I have no idea what else has been damaged as we left it alone as soon as we saw what was wrong so they can come over and look at it. Their initial reaction was they can clean it up and it would be fine, but I would never be able to trust this engine again after all the shavings going in even if there was no additional damage. Is there any way of salvaging the motor after such an event or should I demand they replace it? I hope they are stand up enough to take care of the problem without getting attorneys involved, but I will have to wait and see. I will keep you posted.
