Build thread for Renee’s work-Read POST#1
« on: September 23, 2018, 09:26:24 AM »

Hello people.
If you don’t have anything supportive to say, zip it. What we have here is successful communication between a young lady and her Samurai. The Samurai is therapeutic and a way for the community to help in Renee’s adventure in what we hope will be a normal life someday. This is not your normal young person. She has proven to be talented and hard working. 2 virtues often missing in the youth of today. So as she asks for technical support and advice, show her we sincerely care and with little effort on our part we can make a big difference in one persons life.

Exactly what I was thinking.

Pardon my ignorance, but what is the advantage to a Metro valve cover?

Ten horse power and unlimited beautiful women fawning over you.


Actually, its just for looks really. Have to admit it makes the stock tin one look like butt.

It’s main feature is that it’s gonna deal much better with the O-ring seal than the ancient cork gasket technology. 

Odds to have a Samurai tin valve cover leak oil: High
Odds for aluminum cast Metro valve cover to leak: Low

I'm admiring how clean the engine bay looks. Wish mine was that clean.

Thank you :) It was a mega labor of love to do, heh. The layers of caked on oil were, in a way, facinating. I didn't know some of the parts in there should be silver, hahaha :)

Working conditions are not the best either over in that part of the country. Wish that they were closer to this side of the country.

Today was clear and cool, so after all the weekend errands, I installed a new PCV valve and fixed the rat's nest of vacuum lines, with the help of Ack's FAQ. Zukie has never ran and idled so smooth before. My dog Lucas and I celebrate. :)

I think Lucas was telling you that you need a ZOR t-shirt. He is your dog so you probably can understand it better than I can by looking at one picture. Sure seems to me that’s what he is saying. Just because you are on the sponsor program doesn’t mean you are not allowed to post in the free product giveaway. Time to start a good daily habit of saying hello in the first thread of the ZORum
