The front valve cover can be removed without removing the front water tube but only if you pull the front coils, ( as best as I remember).
Thanks for the excellent info and pics Mas.
The very existence of flamethrowers proves that sometime, somewhere, someone said to themselves, “You know, I want to set those people over there on fire, but I’m just not close enough to get the job done.”
