That’s a nice picture of your muffler Ray. The casting seam on the pressure fitting needs to be cleaned up a bit so it doesn’t leak. If the pressure line leaks even just a little it could effect how well the engine pipes up.

Kurt,

Not sure why your wife would be mad at you getting a new Q40. Mine doesn't mind me spending the $50 it costs for a new one! :D

That's an excellent point Gary!! I think you should spend $100 and get a Giant Scale Racer and come racing with us at 240mph!!

I don't like testing or practicing enough to do giant scale!

Isn't this fix almost as much money as a new muffler?

Dave,

If I read the invoice right, the 5-40 line has 20 inserts and the installation tools. So, thats $1.40+/- per insert.
