I have worked with a lot of technicians in my 16 years and I could tell Eric knew what he was doing 20 minutes into the procedure. He pulled the left valve cover and checked the cams on that side to make sure some one hadn't welded them previously. No such luck. The exhaust cam shaft had .002-.004 of play in it. I felt like a weight was lifted from my shoulders.

See Greg's complete story under the link Eric Lehmann Cam Weld Experience. Was nice to meet and hang with Greg for a while. He's most definitely not out of the Ford Mold, and you can tell he cares. That's both a nice and rare thing in this day and age. I know any GENIII that wanders into his dealership will be well cared for.
