    I need to find me some headers too. I need to keep the cats due to the emission laws in this state. So maybe some mid catted kooks.
    There goes my tax return if the wife doesnt take it from me.

    Once, there was a penguin driving across Death Valley. His car got hot and overheated just as he got to a small town with just a café and a service station. He was just able to drive into the service station when his car quit running. While they looked at his car, he went to the café. He got hot and asked if there was anywhere cooler because, well, he's a penguin. They let him sit in the walk in freezer since he was well, a penguin. There was a stash of ice cream bars, and was kind of hungry. He overdid it and ate all of the vanilla ice cream bars, then fell asleep. He woke up a little later and went to check on his car. When he arrived, they said, "well, it looks like you blew a seal." He wiped off his beak and replied, "nah, that's just ice cream."

    How much is leaking? Do you have to add oil in between changes? If it is not much, you could just do nothing. Mine has been leaking for years at the back of the motor. Less than 1/4 QT between changes and never gets worse.

    Honestly not that much. Just sucks that one day after 9.5 years now I see a leak. I can live with it but I rather live it with for a short time until I have all the parts to make the upgrades.
