Since you appear to have some experience replacing spark plugs/tubes. I have a question for you. I am planning on replacing the spark plugs/tubes soon on my 99 boxster. when i look on Pelicans website they have assembly grease for spark plug tubes for $47. is there a lower cost alternative? like vaseline, dish soap? is this stuff a lubricant or a sealer?
You know I'd prefer to keep posting ideas in the open on the forum. This is a hobby for me and I don't take it too seriously. If I did I wouldn't be so open about my ideas. I will let you know I have not fleshed out the oiling path from the high pressure side of the driven gear to an oiling hole in the gear. I was waiting for someone to jump on that as a flaw, but perhaps it's not a flaw. The assumption is that the hole has to pass through the high pressure side where it will steal a smidgen of oil each rotation.
Yes I want the tube seals. replacing spark plugs and tubes has been on my list of things to do just been busy with other items on the car. what do you want for them? shipping? my address is
