TY250 Exhaust Burn Out

Postby tat ty » Sat May 12, 2018 8:19 pm

Ladies and Gentlemen.

Winter approaches.

This year we have done a major in the garden and the "burn pile" is well over the size of a house.

I'm sure it will burn hot for 48 hours and some.

So ... not to waste the moment ... I thought I might toss the TY exhaust, along with many others, into the mix.

Is there anything I need to be wary of.

Alastair.

Bonfires are just the right temperature. It does only need to be bonfire hot for 30 minutes or so. I wouldn't leave it any longer than needed for the smoke to stop coming out, to avoid unnecessary oxidisation.


relax, nothing is under control

I never used that method to clean a TY exhaust, but I noticed a difference after the cleaning. If you have a chance put your exhaust on a scale before and after, you might be surprise.

Thank you.

I'll tie a loooooong piece of fencing wire to it and fish it out in time.

You can leave it in the fire for plenty of time, might as well do it thoroughly.
I burn it out in a 44g drum. Some people shoot compressed air through while it's hot.
Beware though, watch out for the sparks etc. (and don't tell anyone I said!)
There will be burnt carbon which needs to be shaken out afterwards.

Be careful I ruined an exhaust by leaving it on a hot bonfire for to long. If you leave it on for to long you will completely burn out all the packing and the exhaust does not perform properly.

Thanks Stan

Kind of aligns with Davids view.
