After reading the thread, I agree it's being choked off by a too small TB and a tight exhaust system.

Doh, i forgot about those oil control baffles on the stock covers. They keep the oil from making out of those grommets. I ran the aftermarket MP cast aluminum covers for so many years I just forgot.

Pulling valve cover is very simple, you need a 7/16" deep well socket and perhaps a short extension. Spark plug wire looms simply pull straight up and off, revealing the bolt. There are 10 total...

Lock to lock is how i do it too. Keep in mind, if there was air in there, the pump will mix the air into the fluid and run it through the system. It may take a while to work it out.

D'oh. The wrench won't make a hill of bean difference. The clamp goes up and over the housing. It wouldn't move anyway.
