RE: [DML] 245/60Tires and Valve covers



Tom, 
Can you run the car without valve covers and the answer is yes you can, then
the question is how well will it run. Then that is the next question. 
Yes I have in stock all 7mm VC bolts in any length along with the 7mm tool
kit for fixing the hole.
Also if you haven't looked lately I also remade the VC gaskets that are
0.062 thick rubberized heat resistant and oil resistance material. The
normal you will get any where else is the 0.032 thin paper non sealing ones
with out a lot of pressure.

I've been told by DMC CA that you can run the car with the valve covers
off, they are mostly there to contain the oil, more than vacuum.

Did you notice slower acceleration with the wider tires?  I haven't
pulled my headliner down to do any work on it.  I guess to check for the
writing, I would have to pull out the headliner and re-glue it, future
project.

I have a potentially more serious problem, over the weekend, I adjusted
my right side valves and when reassembling the valve cover stripped the
threads on one of the long bolts with the spacer for the cable clip.  I
found a longer bolt that I was able to shim with two nuts and it took
hold and tightened down.  Haven't started up the car yet, but am hoping
it will hold and not leak.  I've never replaced threads before
especially in an area as sensitive as the engine block!
