  1. Hi Everyone, I am in the middle of doing the valve cover gaskets and have the passenger side off. In the middle of the valvecover there is a bolt that screwed into the head in guessing. Anyway, I took it out and pulled off the valve cover and it looks like theres something missing. All the other holes have brass fittings on them except one. I think its the one that had was bolting down the valvecover to the head. In the picture look at the middle of the head to the left. The brass fitting isnt there. Is this normal ? I am noticing it on other pictures kinda.
  2. Hi Guys, Im in the middle of doing the valve cover gaskets. I started with the passenger side. When I took the cover off, there were these brass looking bolts with holes in the middle. cyl. 1-3 had them cyl. 4 was odd duck and did not have it. I looked on pelican and the picture of the valvetrain looked the same with the odd duck brass fitting. It doesnt look right. cyl 4 had a misfire. Im just wondering if any of you might have an hd picture of the passenger side, or even know what im talking about. The picture above shows the drivers side and all the brass fittings are missing.
  3. Thanks for responding Brett968! I was trying to get the cap for the crankcase vent yesterday, but I wasn't sure that the tabs were the only thing holding it on, so I wanted to wait to find out. I'll do that right now. The valve cover gaskets are definitely leaking. When I pulled the spark plugs one was full of oil leaking from the internal valve cover gasket? I am also worried that the intake is leaking too. I'll order the valve cover gasket and the diaphram as a preventative measure. Thanks!
  4. Hi everybody, I have been following this forum for years, but never posted. Its funny (in a painful way) to read these posts. I guess it does make me feel better knowing others are having the same difficulty as myself. I, like others, have been fighting vacuum leaks going on 1 1/2 years. I have replaced the hose going to the booster, but the connection at the booster is crap. It sent me on a goose-chase looking for vacuum leaks which I did find some, but the main one in still the booster. Mine disguised itself by never throwing a code besides random misfire. Then, add a fuel pump proble
  5. KenTHK, there absolutely is a connection with the vacuum at the brake booster and every power-train system. To test this, pull the vacuum hose off the booster while the engine is running. You'll see what I mean. The engine will severely misfire and run like crap. Of course if your engine is throwing codes for random misfire and running like total garbage, that is going to make shifting hard to compute for the computer. If your tranny doesn't shift right due to incorrect computer information then slamming, chattering, and such is expected. So yes, the vacuum in the brake system even thoug
