Ron,
The valve on the forward side of the firewall definitely isn't safe even though that is where many, including mine, are. Reason being exaclty what you surmised. IF the brass were to melt there ...

EXACTLY the same thing happened to me - in fact the verbage in the letter is the same. Good news is when you send a report from your doc it will probably go right through (4 weeks later or so). But I ...
