    OK, I'll give you 3 hints to start:

    - Has to do with something I talked about today.

    - Second hint: Rubber! :D

    - Third hint: Barely escaped trouble with a stupid mistake. Not obvious. You might do it too!

    What did I do?


    lessee who the smart ones are!

    e9999- I like most of your threads, but I really think a discussion about "protection" belongs in chat.

    (Sorry, man, you asked for that one. ;) )

    that was just a test to see who has too much non-tech stuff on their mind...
    Now we know! :D

    But no no, it's very technical!

    easy one E...the rubber grommet holding the PCV in place will often crack into pieces sending debris into the engine. This mistake of not being careful accounts for 1 percent of all rebuilds. ;p

    Well, you're talking to a guy who did experiments today sticking his fingers in the fan, so what do you expect? But nope that's not what I'm talking about.!

    another hint:

    - Something related to the Ocean! :D

    You will be amazed guys. I never never would have thought about this happening. And it would not have been pretty!

    OK, let's get this show on the road.

    Yes, it has to do with SeaFoam.

    Hint: PCV!

    Again important hint: Rubber!
