Newbie here, picked up a 97 SHO yesterday. Got questions!

Hey all,

Hard to find a forum supporting the SHO, but glad I did.

Ok, quick stats: 97 SHO, 134k, all stock, burgundy on gray leather, excellent condition & mechanically seems 110%. Here's the few questions I got for you all"

-My assumption is that by 134k, the cams must have been done. How can I check to see if they're welded?

-My cd changer acts wierd. It wont acknowledge all the discs, but randomly. With the same 6 cd's, I can pop it in & it will only recognize #2 & #6. Then pop it out & back in and now only #4 recognizes, etc. What gives with this & how can I fix it? Clean or adjust something maybe?

-Is there a way to make the rear windows go down all the way, beyond the child safety level?

-All my windows work from the drivers switch, but my passenger door switch won't work. Fuse maybe? Bad switch? Any other ideas or troubleshooting I can do?

-Front inside door handles, is there supposed to be a "cup" behind the handle itself? Mine you can see thru to the door panel & some padding insulation..

-Door panels, mine are hanging off at the corners by the locks. What kind of fasteners do I need?

-Can I put '99 head lights & tail lights on my '97? I prefer the all red tails & the blacked out headlights. Plus my headlights look like poo.

-Where can I get an adapter to mount a cone filter to the MAF? Will one from other cars fit? Maybe another Ford or something. I can't find one for the SHO..

-Front speakers are blown, can I just drop in replacements? Or is the Mach system like a Bose system where they're not compatible with factory amps?

Thanks a MILLION in advance! Other than the minor things above, she's great! Runs & shifts awesome, love the V8 sound!

Appreciate any help.
Nick
