cracked exhaust stack

leaking exhaust gasket (are we seeing a trend, here?)
valve cover screws not completely tight
fuel pump screws loose
all sorts of stuff chafing where they shouldn't be chafing
broken cowl hinge eyes/smoking rivets
That should be enough to convince most of us that a firewall forward inspection is imperative every oil change. I use a quick drain valve but would never consider an oil change without the inspection.
