328 Back in the saddle

got the 328 back from the shop yesterday...gas tank gauge float fixed,,,new trunk molding,,all injectors and fuel lines checked,,and some re routed,,,motor mounts tightened clutch adjusted,(,,longer reach to the pedal,,,more leg room,,but i have to get used to it,),and small oil leak,,from valve cover,( it looked to me like a cam seal when i was under the car ) oil leak was fixed under warrenty,,,i still want to check from underneath after my next drive,,took the car to burbank for my audition yesterday,,,didnt smell any oil burning,,but it was a pin drop size leak,,so im gonna check it myself,,after my next drive,,,no drips on garage floor...Brett

Brett- Looks really nice. Sometimes those really small leaks can be sealed with just a dab of silicone sealer after a thorough cleaning. If it holds, good, if not...

Hey taz

thank you sir,your a really nice fellow Taz..,,ill give that a try,,,Craig..my guy at Fast Cars.,said the mechanic...lifted the valve cover,,and re-sealed it...i hope so,,,,these guys have been pretty good,,,im just not sure how far they are willing to go when it comes to warrenty work,,,last night,,and tonight,,i was able to check most of both valve cover bolts (i was able to get a bite on all but 2 at the cylinder closest to the back)..and i did find a few that needed a little snugging,,,i dont have any torque tools,,i just snugged them up by feel.,.im not sure if the mechanic didnt check them all..but i was happy i was able to do some....self satisfaction checking and tightening,,,i did the same thing a while back,,with the oil pan bolts,,,and most did need to be torqued down a bit...im very limited when it comes to fixing bikes and cars,,but sometimes i do suprise myself,,and take my time...if i can fix some things myself,,i would,,rather than to get my shop aggravated with me,,by questioning them about everything..its hard out here to find trustworthy competent techs.,.next time i drive it,,ill get back under the car and check things,,,thanks Brett

Very cool, Brett! Best of luck!!

How did you apply for the audition - did you have an "in" with someone on the show? I think it'd be fun to give it a shot.
