Hey Pram what did you do with rubber cap that was included in the kit? I can't figure out why this was included? Also, did you use any type of sealant on all the fittings?

I didn't remove the bleeder tubes off the back of the heads, looked like it was going to be a solid pain in the butt so I used the rubber cap on the metal tube that came to the front with a hose clamp

Oh wow, not a bad idea. I wondered what that was in there for.

Yep the rubber cap is to cap off the steam tube with hose clamp.

I have a question regarding the vent tube running in to the exhaust manifold.

Now I do not have a reference other than what I have now

The exhaust manifold side that the head vent tube runs into is substantially hotter than the other side

does anyone else find this?

temp was a solid 140 on the gauge today
