    Hello All!
    Well, I received my replacement gears from Odometer Gear with much thanks! Got to me here in San Diego like a lightning bolt on Tuesday!
    Question: When the intake plenum finally comes up and off, are the black rubber runners with the 6mm band clamps supposed to come off as well or do they stay in place on top of the throttle bodies?
    I've removed all of the aluminum bolts holding the oil separators on both valve covers. Can these be safely cleaned with 114,500 miles on them or just leave them alone or should I get brand new ones? I've got all the 6mm clamps "loosened" with the exception of cylinder #4 which I couldn't get to with the fading light last evening.
    Plan is to install my OG gear set into my throttle actuators over this weekend.
    Stay tuned, as I will update you hopefully with good new soon!
    Thank You!

    The boots will stay on the throttles. You can clean there separator if you like shouldn't harm it, up to you if you want to replace it but I don't see a need if your not having a issue. Heres a link to a good diy on what your doing.
