    Thanks again everyone. I am going to remove the fan, and am now contemplating the electric fan swap. Seems like people really like it. Maybe there will be a sale this weekend...

    did the OFHG on Sunday. Was up until 7AM, as I was trying to clean as much oil and crud from the area as I could. what a friken hassle. doing CCV system next. I will take off the intake manifold to make things easier, as well as clean up some more. Do people idle the engine for a number of minutes to see that there are no more leaks before driving?

    Intake manifold is off and new CCV system is in. Decided to deal with potential vacuum leaks and OBVIOUS vacuum leaks as I went.
    -Replaced both tubes going to the F-connector, as they were old and brittle.
    -replaced vacuum cap on back of manifold (used a Dorman cap, even though people are saying it will fail, i'll just replace it if it does.)
    -hose going from CCV to dipstick tube had that really bad tear that people get... caused enormous vacuum and oil leak.

    Gonna do a final cleaning of the area, then put the intake manifold back in. Then it will be on to fluids!
