	[Mike Ray]  Hi all,
	First, I've got an `84 SVO

	I've got a XR4Ti cam cover in the basement. Was this the same
one used on `86 SVOs. If not, are there any clearance problems using it
on a IC car? If not, I'll throw it on so I too can have the breather.


	PS, The funky heater core hose (obsolete) is still hiding in a
few dealers across the country. I don't have the P/N here today. EMail
iffin you need it. I added the flow restrictor, new core and hoses. I
should be good for the winter!
