There are 49 other states in the union genius...And if you know people, it doesn't matter where you live...

BTW - Most of them don't have rust free cars!

I hope the valve adjustment was really done. On the car I got from you Jason Otto charged you for a valve adjustment ( I have the Work order showing you were charged for the valve adjustment)but the Valve covers had not been removed in years. The gaskets were like rock hard and crumbled when I pulled the covers off.
That is why it dropped a valve.

Are you just saying bad things about the car because you don't work for Otto anymore? That's sad...

No, that car hadn't had a valve adjustment in a lot of hard driving, and I over-heated it on several occasions.

But WTF, why should I have to explain myself to you?!

No I am saying that your 914 work order that I got from you when I got the car from you. States that you were charged for valve adjustment yet the valve covers were never removed.

That is just the facts.

Not true, the heat will cook and harden and shrink those valve covers in a hurry.

Are you saying that Otto doesn't do the work he charges people for?

But you didn't answer the question. Kinda fits your political persona also, double-talking instead of being direct...

Jason the Valve covers were rusty the bail had not been slide over the rust. He charged you for work that was never done and that is a fact.

Just the Rusty Valve covers. gaskets that were so old the they crumbled, a 2.0 with a dropped valve and a work order that say's you were charged for a valve adjustment.

Sounds like Jason went to work for Otto's now. Why would he be pushing this car so much here and on the 914 Club. I have to go with Steve on this one. 76 cars are not worth much here in California. We will see where the price goes on that car.

According to his post in Weber issues Jason is in Greensboro,NC. Helluva a commute I would say.
