Re: Why just fix the leak when you can eliminate the choke points?

pleas put it on a scale before installation. what do you figure? north of 30#s I checked it last week and it weighs in at a hefty 31 lbs. I still haven't weighed the factory parts to see how much things are changing. They are buried deeper in the snow now. What is the end goal here? silencing the n...

Re: Why just fix the leak when you can eliminate the choke points?

pleas put it on a scale before installation. what do you figure? north of 30#s I should be able to check it this afternoon. I would guess it around 30 lbs. I'll also try weighing the factory parts that this replaces to get a comparison. I won't likely get that done today since it is buried in snow....

Re: Why just fix the leak when you can eliminate the choke points?

I cut the insulation for the other end and tacked the outer end plate in place. I guess you can’t really even see the end plates with the insulation bulging out. 19589E01-8B35-4EAA-918B-EAC8A7BFE1CE.jpeg Then I cut a piece of the insulation that would wrap around the entire inner chamber. I laid it ...

Re: Why just fix the leak when you can eliminate the choke points?

I put a bell mouth on the outlet pipes for a smoother transition into them. Then welded them into the inner end plate. The outer end plate is just slipped on in this photo for test fitting. 4FBB5A03-6841-403D-B7F1-F141D1AACC09.jpeg After welding the end plate in, I cut a piece of mineral wool insula...

Re: Why just fix the leak when you can eliminate the choke points?

now get back to work. Yes, sir! Made some progress this morning. I slipped the end plate of the outside shell back on to help verify clearance as I did a test fit. A4A5EF15-76F5-41F4-8A43-13DEDF0D14ED.jpeg Then I taped the plate in place at the other end so that I didn’t have to try to hold it as I...

Re: Another broken power window wire thread

I ended up cutting both wires back as far as I could to attempt to get to an area of the harness that would not flex so much. Here is the connector end at the body.

Another broken power window wire thread

My driver side front window went from intermittently working to non functional recently. Decided it was time to check out the wiring in the door hinge area as has been documented here before. Just looking at the boot indicated it has been worked on before. The boot is slit and tie banded back closed...

Re: Why just fix the leak when you can eliminate the choke points?

I put in a stiffener across the side plates to try to prevent any vibration. FD5AC240-E0EC-4F5F-BD41-58C852356790.jpeg Then I added a stiffener from top to bottom. 21DFE6B5-CB6A-4D8A-812F-822E7F914A83.jpeg I drilled a hole in the bottom plate before welding it in so that I could plug weld it to the ...

Re: Why just fix the leak when you can eliminate the choke points?

Progress was much better last night. I cut out a top and side plate for the inner chamber before supper and went back out after supper to tack them in place. FE60BD0C-F2FC-4DE9-9460-824A45991A9B.jpeg That went so well that I welded up the seams 100%. 1B3A06DC-DE80-4001-8C80-A5CA0C7F1EEE.jpeg And THA...
