2 days before we're "eclipsed", and the Light will dim across the land. As big a deal as Haley's comet and then some :o

Your only as smart as your last epiphany, but if you can see the Light, your world will never dim ;)

I have over 100 Nascar tee shirts in my shop in NW Arkansas for sale. I could not give them away for free. Could not sell them at $1.00 each.

Pintosopher, you are exactly right. The cost at the track is too much. Good to enjoy once in a while but not on a regular basis.

Why would any couch potato want to pay too much for tickets, Buy overpriced food, and wait to use the Facilities when nature calls? It's so much more convenient to just order in and fire up the Digital broadband, and you can pause to use the Bathroom in your own house. Smellovision coming soon to en

I think the cruddy racing at the Brickyard and the novelty of racing there has worn off more than NASCAR being in trouble. Not saying it's not, just saying it's not a good race to see in person at that facility

If its a blue Felpro, no glue is necessary. The gasket is a life time rated one.
Its better to be a has-been, than a never was.

It isn't- its a thick black Mahle-I was told by the one parts guy I should use Permatex Ultra Black & another guy wanted to sell me RTV- This is my 1st use of non-cork & its a 1 piece - if you know the engine it has that arch in the front for the timing belt so i'm having trouble keeping it in place-so any help appreciated ;)

Most of the rubber valve cover gaskets that I recall (similar to the 2.3 engine) typically call for a sealant at the front, inner corners where it sweeps upward over the arch. In the past I have always used RTV. Love to buy the smaller tubes at the 99 Cent only stores so I don't wind up throwing 80% of it away when it eventually hardens in the larger tube.
