    Which tube is #3? The second one back on L/H header, correct? Where is the bolt located?

    1-3-5-7-9 (Driver's Side) front to back.
    2-4-6-8-10 (Pass Side)

    Bolt is located on the steering shaft coupler. The guys doing your headers can watch for that. IOW, when you turn the steering wheel, the bolt will hit the #3 header tube a little. Best to fix it before it wears off the ceramic coating.

    I think (in your case), you'd need to take a hammer to both sides. ;)

    All this whizzy sci-fi stuff these days: Laser alignment, precise and repeatable CNC machining, cool new alloys, SSD and USB thumb drives for computers, 3-D printed hamburgers (well, maybe not the last one in the list) and yet exhaust system manufacturers still can't build a header that just bolts up. WTF?!?

    What is the chrome valve letter made of? Is it metal or some other type of material like plastic.

    Bill,

    I would use Jet-Hot. Their business is heat management, corrosion, and friction reduction by using coatings. Their world headquarters is in Burlington, NC. They have a web site and can quote you online. Their # is 1-(800) 432-3379. They are a little more expensive, it cost me $320.00 back in 2010 to coat my headers. Their online link is: https://www.jet-hot.com/coatings.

    I hope this help you.

    A science Experiment:

    Both Aluminum and Magnesium ignore magnets (Gen II and Gen III Valve Covers)

    Magnesium reacts with Vinegar (Gen II Valve Covers)

    Aluminum does not react to Vinegar (Gen III Valve Covers)

    The end.

    IF you can ever get magnesium to catch fire, it is something to behold.

    So tonight (is it night there now?), when you have finished gardening/bark-mulching, find some old Gen II valve covers and throw them on the Bar-Bee.

    This should entertain yourselves, your neighbors and quite likely the fire department.

    We are 6 hrs behind but tomorrow or 18 hrs ahead.
    Eeeww! Vegemite on a bbq gross. Great on toast tho, very fine smear only as it is too concentrated
    You are in quite a mischievous mood tonight. Sound positively dangerous
    I use a bit of good old oven cleaner (caustic) on my BBQ that gets it clean, just hose it off.

    Yes it is. We had an A-6 make a hard landing on the JFK, and for whatever reason, the left main mount wheel froze up, skidding down the deck. It then snapped off, and caught fire. Nothing says mesmerizing like a magnesium rim in full blaze. It literally started melting into the deck, until the deck crew were able to push it over the side of the ship. Interesting to say the least.
