Poorly rebuilt motor has loud ticking. I bought a rebuilt motor from Gearhead two years back and paid extra for a no fault warranty. After a year the motor started making loud ticking from driver side valve cover. Gearhead’s warranty dept told me to have my mechanic diagnose it, then I should pay out of pocket to repair and get reimbursed for some of it after sending the used parts to Gearhead for inspection. My mechanic tells me this could end up costing $700 or more depending on the condition of the cam as well as the lifters. Gearhead has told me its common practice of theirs to polish and reuse old cams in their rebuilds. That came as a shocker to me since a rebuilt engine should be completely rebuilt. If they reused the old cam then what else did they see fit to reuse as well? | My mechanic, my local machine shop machinist as well as the Mustang forums I belong too have all said this is a very bad practice. The mystery of how bad this can be until I commit to pay my own mechanic out of my own pocket just to start pulling my motor apart is bad enough. But Gearhead refused to deal direct with my mechanic and pay him the labor cost after he diagnoses whats wrong. They want an invoice paid by me and the old parts back for “inspection” Look through all the complaints in this forum and one of their common themes is that Gearhead also known as ATK VEGE commonly denies claims once parts are shipped to them. I want Gearhead to pay my mechanic directly. I cannot lay out that much money and wait who knows how long to get some of it back. | This motor was slapped together using old parts and new seals. Dont bother with them. Go to a local guy you can see your motor being rebuilt.
Extortion warning: | Please share with anyone in the garland/rowlett area to stay far away from this moving company final touch!!!
