Changed my cam follower today

Looks like I did just in time too. I barely bumped the radiator distribution pipe and the nipple broke off in the process. Coolant EVERYWHERE. My car is at 108k, just bought it. If anyone else is installing a new cam follower at around 100k I would recommend draining your coolant and replacing this pipe too and save yourself some hassle. Still way cheaper than a new cam though. Just wanted to say thanks to everyone here, I did a bunch of preventative stuff based on recommendations here.

Here's a link to that distribution pipe if it happens to anyone else.

If you want to see all the old photobucket pics just add an extension to Chrome.

Go HERE and add this Photobucket Hotlink Fix extension.

What do you guys recommend for cleaning coolant and oil out of the engine bay? I recently replaced the seals on my vacuum pump due to an oil leak as well so I have a big mess of gunk. It started up fine with coolant everywhere (although there was some steam) so I doubt a little simple green and water will hurt right?
