Minnoe07, thanks for the response.
Yeah don't fix it if it (the nonfouler solution) ain't broke right?
I was going to try the nonfoulers this weekend either way, but I couldn't help asking myself "what if i just ... ?"
But i'm sure, while working on my car this weekend, i'll run into a lot of "oh that's why i can't ..." or "oh that's what they were talking about" and eventually "man, i must've sounded like an idiot on the forum"
knew i was being too naive about this, just needed someone to point it out for me lol. we'll see how it goes...
