You're right Tinker.....I'll keep the jack off of the crank. I'll call an old friend and get his hoist from him , but its a ride. At least it'll be not as stessful as fighting a rental deadline.
David, over torquing that valve cover really kills it. Its funny, when ya see a leak , you think it needs more tightening. Sometimes that widens the gap more! I replaced that valve cover seal a while back and used a bunch of RTV goop with it. For the most part, it worked pretty well.
Thanks for the support folks. I'm gonna have to make the time to do it right. Get a hoist and rip it down. Rails and chain.
