    Is he anywhere near Austin, MN? Possibly a guy there that could do it cheaper thatn most shops. Also if nearer Eden Prairie could check Courtney's Truck Service. Maybe still does work on SHO's, but probably cost a bit too.

    You can look through my SHO repair photos here: https://www.dropbox.com/sh/moz77s4au3hfx09/AADRW1HkbOsxdK9m7ctCkz05a?dl=0
    Some of them will show good detail of the rear cam seal being replaced, and how to do it without the Ford special tool. If a shop looks it up in their repair manual. they will see it calls for a special tool that they do not have, and they will be scared off. Show a few shops the pictures, and see who is comfortable taking the job on.

    I know this post is kind of old but if you need a good place to fix your sho Midwest motor sports in Sauk Rapids MN is a great shop they have worked on my sho and specialize in imports and although they are not the cheapest place their work is second to none. It's only about a hour north west of the cities
