to add to dave's post, you put a couple of washers in the center of the sandwich cooler, to support the center, then you can tighten it down, and not crush it. howard used 2 of these copper crush rings i had lying around, and they fit perfect. also, since the crush rings have a little "give", i think these will be better than regular washers. someone wrote a vfaq about this. but, if this dont solve your problem, sounds like the oil pressure relieve valve stuck. THAT will be a problem. [email protected]
