Exhaust shroud
« on: June 27, 2012, 01:46:41 PM »
Decided togive the end can a thorough clean with Chrome cleaner. Took the shroud off - lovely job - good as new.BUT  :230: when trying to refit the shroud I managed to cross thread the bolt which screws into the bracket which is welded onto the can. I tested a bolt I found in me toolbox - no probs - threads OK. Unfortunately my smugness was short lived. The bolt then sheared as I (over) tightened it leaving the pre drilled bracket hole full of the remnants. :138:
Now have choice of remove can (maybe new Gasket required when I refit) and drill out the bracket, or slice the bracket and remove top bit then "replace" with a seperate bracket which I will bolt on to remaining side section of the original bracket.

Am thinking I might get the shroud powder coated black while I am at it but just thought you should all share in my pain here guys. Lets here it for Joe...aaaawww. :019:

Sorted - no gasket required - slipped can off, drilled out sheared bolt and refitted with a new nut/bolt. Simples. :046:
