Next time...

I just paid to have mine done. Next time I do it myself. The mechanic who did it does it quite often and said he used teflon packing which should be good for 5 years. I'm guessing/hoping its the Gore GFO that was mentioned. The original price was sky high and when I complained the owner of the company justified the price by stating "no body wants to do them"??....well he adjusted the price, and "I" want to do them now.

My formula for living is quite simple. I get up in the morning and I go to bed at night. In between, I occupy myself as best I can.
