RCT 170 exaust fixed
« on: June 10, 2018, 04:41:27 PM »
So my dad's friend was kind enough to repair my exaust for me, we discovered that not only was the mounting bracket cracked but there was also a crack in the actual exaust. I remounted the exhaust and now my starting difficulty is fixed too. Could the broken exaust have effected the starting issue I had? I also discovered why the exhaust cracked in the first place. They put a spacer which was far too large in, putting more pressure on one bracket than the other two, they also incorrectly torqued the bolts adding to the problem. Atleast it's fixed now, I repainted the entire exhaust while it was off too, so now it's looking really good.
