Well I had to verify the Google search comment.
Don't lie, I'm sure even now they're printing up and cutting vinyl for a billboard of whatever it is Tynan does you paid to have to go up in central Iowa. I hear there's to be a rotating squarebody burb on top.

Because I don't want to see it in the southeast, you don't want to see it in the northeast, DRIVEN would kill you if you set it up in the northwest, and, in the southwest those Cali freaks would make him millions and we don't want that. Texans would shoot you before you set it up, and, too cold/snowy in the deep north like Minnesota for that kind of work these days.

Iowa's perfect.

I'll admit.... I wondered how things worked out for him (Tynan). But, like his other threads, there isn't much follow-up stating what the outcome is/was.

I clicked & followed the link for the other site & read through some of the posts/comments over there. One thing I found interesting was Tynan stating that in addition to the cam swap he was pulling the oil pan. There were members over there telling him it wasn't mandatory & not to do it (to minimize the quantity of tasks he was undertaking). He stated the reason he needed to pull the pan was there was a leak..... a big leak, coming from the front timing cover area seal @ the pan lip.

Remember that thread? I remember posting & explaining why there was a need for novices to drop the pan (to help ensure a better opportunity for sealing success) yet he questioned the advice because others said it doesn't need to be dropped (which is true when you know what you're doing).

He mentions in the post on the other site that he had multiple layers of silicon (5-6?) yet it was still a constant leak. To me, his credibility could/would still be in check had he went back to that thread he started here & stated that the outcome of doing it the way he chose was a failure. Not just that one incident/issue..... but all/any of them.

Owning up to the mistakes learned along the path of your learning curve from those you sought help from gives validity to those that made the suggestions for the particular way things should be done. Yes, there's obviously more than one right way but when you coach someone on the logic of why they should/shouldn't do things a certain way & they claim "I was lied to; I was told me wrong info; I wasn't given certain details".... Well, that's the blame-game. It sort of ruins your credibility.

Sure.... Some guys here could have been nicer w/the verbiage in the back-n-forth exchanges w/him. But, some were also extremely patient/polite w/him.

I was both. At times I would try to help. But when he had fire ants in his drawers, I responded in kind. He wasn't exactly innocent
