    Well, there was nobody else in the garage (except our garage cat Miss Snot, & she professed complete innocence), & I did it, so I accept responsibility for my cerebral flatulence. The small good news is that one of the old engine's heads had developed a crack between the valves so maybe this was a better way to find out (as opposed to driving at somewhere over the posted speed limit on a back road...)

    They sure look nice when they're all clean like that. Too bad it doesn't last.

    Common sense is like deodorant. The folks who need it most never seem to use it and there's no polite way to tell them.
