Re: Red hot muffler what would cause it!!!
It doesnt look like i am going to be able to get the jeep in the my shop till the weekend or late week.. My Dad has a new/old,old lathe he just bought apart cleaning and painting it. So until he is done i really dont want to just barge in. So it will give me some time to think about it.
Once i get it inside im going to dig into it. I thought about checking the timing tonight but its just tooooo damn cold out. I ordered another cat and muffler today. Cause im sure the cat that is on it now is shot, and the muffler maybe ok, but i dont really want it any louder then it was.
Ill update as i find out whats going on. After thinking about it this weekend, i am wondering about the carb maybe. The jeep sits so much that the carb is always drying out, so im sure its crappy in side. But for it to turn the muffler red it would have had to been flooding out so bad that it wouldnt have been idling nicely and it was idling normal.
I dont know. Im still bummed about the whole deal.
