My exhaust can was a little bent, I had intended to get a specialist to fix it but curiosity got the better of me.
I had read somewhere that degradation of the muffler packing can be a source of lost horsepower so I thought I best have a look.
Sure enough there was an area of packing that was burnt away but hardly enough to cause serious problems.
I like the way the Torquehammer muffler is put together, the core is s/s wire wool wrapped to keep packing blowout to a minimum, very thoughtful, a lot of manufacturers don't bother..
To tidy up my dented sleeve I just used a bit of round timber post, mallet and a flat surface.
If I can borrow a dolly before the new packing arrives I might dress the sleeve a little more.
For now thats it, just waiting for packing and rivets... watch this space.
