Re: [DML] Good news for vin 2277 AT LAST!!

Well the easiest way to find out is adjust the valves.  Dave has heard
and anyone else that saw the video of my Black Beauty (4045) with a
nasty ticking noise coming from the left front valve area, and it
isn't an exhaust leak.  I wanted it to be an exhaust leak.  That's why
she is in Houston getting a stage II engine upgrade among other things.

An exhaust leak won't hurt the engine but will drive you nuts, as it
get worse.

VIN 6704 and 4045
