Like the project, do the prep work so you can get back to working with both arms.

Hey Guys,

Hope everyone is doing well and moving forward on the projects. I'm 8 or so sessions into my PT and getting some decent movement. I did a light tricep workout today and spent some time in the garage.

I did have some rapid heart beat issues, went to the hospital and once again they couldn't find anything. I've been dealing with this for 30 years now. Goes away for couple years, then back, then gone again.....go figure.

I pressure tested the first header today...... it's a no go, the header leaks at the collector. I've got to go in thru the collector opening and weld the 4 star area's.

I'm going to have my boy take a stab at it. It looks like it would be easier to seal with some small diameter stick versus getting down their with the tig torch.

If we can't seal it I'll cut the collector off and reweld a new set of collectors... I'll have to get another set of those bullet stars as well.

With all the medical crap I've just gone thru....this ain't nuttin.

More to come in a few days or week...... going to go at it slowly )

Good to hear you're on the mend, a little puttering in the shop is a good thing, just don't overdo it

It might be wise to find a doc that understands your rapid heartbeat situation.

Yes, light work in the garage can be considered PT.

I've come to like the sound of header leaks.

Hey Bob....I'm going for a second opinion on the 27th. It's never steady....comes and goes and sometimes gone for years.

Yeah.... not doing anything heavy. Kid tried to get at that leak but no dice. I'm gona wack the collector off and start again with a new one. It's definitly because we didn't weld out far enough at that star area.

Keep you posted....on the headers and the ticker

Glad to hear your on the mend, yup when you think you have welded far enough on the Star go a little bit further.

Don't give up, it's far too much fun once you can drive it.
