I want to try that right now! That'* one of the coolest things I've ever heard of. Did you have to make a seal with the shop vac, or was there some air between the tube and the valve cover?

This is just as cool as the magnet trick to get a needle to move....or using a hair dryer and a can of compressed cold air to pop a dent!

Three very useful things I've learned from here in the past week!

Looks like we learn something new just about everyday. That'* a pretty neat trick though. I wonder if that would work the same for replacing a freeze plug

My mom is exactly like that. The Minimeet in NC i went to earlier this year mom didn't want me to, dad convinced her to let me go. Dad was like, they're car guys, it doesn't matter thier age they have a common interest and for the most part will get along. Mom was like they could be perverts waiting to ****** you as soon as you get there. And i said thats a little extream...and that'd be far fetched idea and a pretty big hoax on the forums if that was true, lol (mom wasn't being completely serious with that thought FYI)

anyway back to the topic i guess

and as for a seal, dad poped the valve cover cap off, and put a rag around the opening and stuck the vacume tube to it
