Now the only question left is how to get it over the triangle-flanges? I don't think splitting it is an option since it's a ceramic-cloth material with a helical steel spring. That would make it very difficult to "re-seam" back together. Hmmm... the wheels keep turnin'.
Well, honest to goodness, the BobD didn't really care about the 118* driving, the "numbers" were just too high. Valve adjustments showed no change, no evidence of baked oil inside the valve covers. It is a chilly 92* today.
