I'm looking for a good CAS. Mine is rattling. Making quite a racket actually. Any out there?

Are you sure it’s the CAS?
My engine started making an awful rattly noise a couple of years ago which seemed to be coming from the CAS (using a stethoscope). I changed the CAS and the noise was still there. A couple of oil changes later, it’s gone. :smt102

The shaft has cracked and it has enough slop to be noisy.

I think he has sorted it...

O.K.
Sounds pretty definitive. :mrgreen:
I guess the difference is between “noise” and “racket”.

When the shaft finally breaks it is quiet, very quiet.

A CAS is supposedly on the way. I don't know if it hit the post yet.

Both of my cars need CAS work.

According to USPS, it will be delivered today.
