WB E-series maintenance
Posted December 05, 2001 - 08:57 AM
Can anyone tell me if the header is made out of stainless steel or if it has a chrome layer. I am asking this since I intent to "polish" the header with sandpaper, to make it shine again. Is this safe? Any other suggestions, also for the muffler.
Another question: has the muffler some kind of glaswool filling that likely has to have some maintenance, as the pipe seems quite "used"?

You can also use a product called Brasso on your pipe (removes stains and deposits without alot of elbow grease)and muffler or any comercial grade aluminum polish. I've used Mag wheel polish on my head pipe with very good success.
You also should go ahead and order new packing material for the system if you don't know its history. If it's been wet a few times, it's probably ruined and not very effective. It's not hard to do, just remove the disks and use a drill to cut off the rivet heads. If I remember correctly, when your order the packing, it comes with replacement screws for the rivets. Or you could just re-rivet it back on.
