    I remember when you posted about this re-route, I really ought to read through the attachment and perform this re-route on the summer DD.

    Oddly enough, the 88 I had never fouled plugs.

    Replacing the gaskets fixes oil leaks. I ended up biting the cash bullet and had a shop do that. my 88 didn't leak any more when I sold it.
