In the process of getting a safety sticker, one of the items on the short list was the muffler inlets were pooched. So off comes the muffler. After a quick look (you know you just have to look) in the inlet something appeared ...
An egg!

At first my fear was that my turbo was done. But then I thought hmmm, no smoke, decent power, naw, then the light went on. I had seen this before. All of a sudden I realized what it in fact really meant. So after I welded on new inlets, re-skinned the muffler barrel and welded up the hanger brackets, I was ready to re-install.

Well, if you didn't lose a turbo, the PO certainly did!

Thatís an exhaust deatomizer. Donít put your muffler back on without reinstalling it. If you donít put it back in your fuel mileage will go down, youíll have less power, oil composition will increase and the engine will run hotter.  I have 2 of them in my exhaust system, one of them is fixed and the one other is stationery. That's the best setup for deatomizers. Don't accuse me of making this up. It's time to let the world know about exhaust deatomizers no point in keeping them a secret any longer.  Garhawk wanted me to put 3 in his exhaust, I wouldnít do it, could of ripped that Eagle in half.

Also need magnets in the fuel inlet-increases power and separates fuel molecules to burn more properly. If you believe that.... Good Luck, TomC

Don't forget to install crystal pyramid's on the exhaust manifold's to absorb negative ion's.

I know Ericbsc would never tell us which system or combination of systems he's using. If someone knows I think we deserve to know. Ned, Gary?? I think I know the special additive that Ned uses.

Rusty  When you get the new coach running  Ken and I will have to bring a load of spring water out to christen her.  Like a big ocean going ship.

On my wish list of thing to do is visit you Clifford and go trout fishing with Don.

Visited a friend yesterday that is building a truck to pull his old John Deere tractors.

It is powered with a 12v71 Detroit. Has headers all chromed and painted black.

It is on a Chev truck frame with disk brakes.

If it is as nice as his tractors when finished will be a show truck.

It can also be rigged to run with hydrogen made from water.

After strenuous research I found out it is actually not an egg but it is in fact an ultra rare MCI optional muffler bearing (P/N 632-4213 and not the electronic version 632-4215) so I ordered a new one but it will be six weeks before it arrives  Cry.

Did you order the chrome option? If not, you wasted your money.  Cool
