    I like the umbrella kind myself and have used them successfully for years. Others tell me I am crazy for doing so but don't have a reason why. Anyone know why I am so crazy? Just curious.............

    Like to go sloppin' 'round in da mud in a rapid fashion....=) [​IMG]

    Yeah I would like to know also what works for other people. I have been living with the ol "Puff O Blue" for about a year now and want to install new seals soon.

    My uncle has been building chevy motors for some 20 years or so and has always said the umbrellas are the way to go.
