Changing the leaky VC gasket and PCV grommet this afternoon.

Turns out the old gasket wasn't exactly leaking ... the bolts were loose. :cool::sleep:

The gasket peeled off in one piece no problem. I might just sell it on SNS for negative $2. :rolleyes:

Cheers, Tim

Yep, you're right.... there is a very slow drip in what appears to be two spots. One appears to be a hose, and the other next to the fuel filter.

That would be a project that should be bumped to the top of the list.... thanks for the heads-up. :yes:

Cheers, Tim

I remember my valve cover was only on finger tight. Several of the rockers were way too lose as well.

About time you cleaned that thing up. :D

Tell yah what.... I'll send you the old gasket for free, and you can keep it as a spare. :D Or better yet, hang it on the wall!!!

That oil has been changed recently.... but I'm churning up all kinds of old ****.

I would change it now but really I think I need a new pan (long story). How is it possible that I can change the top end out but not be able to remove the oil pan plug??? :rolleyes:

That's why I will only change my own oil from now on..... it's still all fun.

Cheers, Tim

I already have a cork one hanging in my garage :D

I put the door guards on Lucille on Sunday. The drivers door one was a little bent, so I'll have to see if I can get it to fit better when I can wrap my head around bending it in 12 directions at once to get it right.
