Caustic soda is very messy but works well. to block up the stinger end, use a spud and fill from the ex port end. not sure about std cans as there sealed. i think too much heat will turm them to ash so be very carefull. i use oxy/acytelene gear to decoke my pipes rather than caustic but only as the gear is at work. stinks f awful though. after getting the pipe to glow, tap with a rubber/wooden mallet so the now dried depostits drop out. bike will feel much sharper afterwards.

Already have the 7x3.5 shed and was wondering if I can buy 2 extra side panels plus extra roofing if I can convert to a 7x7

if you got it from a local distributor for the shed then extra panels would be no problem
however it you want to make the shed wider then you will also have to make the roof longer to cover the extra side length
the exercise then becomes almost as expensive as buying a new shed the right size
consider selling the existing shed and getting a new bigger shed

Whirlpool gas dryer will not gethot enough to dry

the usual problem is lint build up and or to long of a run for the exhaust tube..When was the last time you cleaned you dryer exhaust ? I had an issue where I had to run my dryer through 4 cycles before a load would get close to being dry. I thought I has cleaned out all the lint from the dryer.. Finally I just ripped out all my exhaust tunes and sure enough there was a a large amount of lint build up where the shop vac did not reach. SO i replaced all the exhaust tubing and since I have a long run I added an exhaust fan, now the dryere works like it should,..

Do I have to clean the exhaust duct on my dryer or is just cleaning the lint fliter good enough?

You should clean the exhaust duct and filter of the dryer because it will make your dryer more effecient. I found that after cleaning the exhaust duct it took significantly less time to dry clothes.

Blower bogs down and kills at full throttle

Check the following, then clean or replace:
  • Fuel Filter - Located IN the fuel tank
  • Spark Plug
  • Spark Arrestor - at muffler port, creates resistance of exhaust flow, engine then bogs
  • Carburetor - may need a rebuild kit
Then watch this...

My high efficiency furnace has water (possibly condensation) running down the air intake pvc pipe into the furnace and all over the burner, gas valve, and wiring.

First, check the drainline from the furnace. You have a 90% gas fired furnace. Where 80% furnace has 1 heat exchanger, yours has 2 heat exchangers. And the second heat exchanger will cool the exhaust enough, that it ends up below the dew point, and your furnace outlet/exhaust will condensate. This drain is probably stopped up. Now, I've installed and service many of these systems and I've only seen the piping at the roof you described once. And that was when the roofers replaced the roof, damaged the furnace flue pipe, and tried to repair it themselves. Normally, and this may not apply to yours, we tie in the exhaust/supply lines about 2-3 ft. above the furnace. Then 1 pipe goes through the roof. Thus 1 pipe is a kit that has an inner liner & outer pipe(2 pipes in 1). Now I'm not sure if this is a problem or normal for your system, but it may be worth looking into. You should be able to find it in the installation manual, or call a local parts house that sells your brand, or as your tech. And if it's just your drain, forget all about the piping I mentioned. Hope this helps!

Just as i came off the motorway from buying it and the exhaust emmissions light came on and now smoke coming out of exhaust when setting off also my roof is extreamly slow when i try to lower it

thats not good, the smoke could be oil burning or coolant being brunt, this is hard to say without seeing it as far as the roof you can try to clean and spray lube on the track and then open and close it a few times.

I have a vsc light and vsc light off on too,plus it idles really low like it's going to die but doesn't,it has a awful rattling sound coming from exhaust somewhere. the cat.converter has been changed and...

I would look under the car mid way for an exhaust leak.There will be an oval shaped clamp with 2 studs about 3`` apart on the side of the catalytic converter holding a wired sensor in place. Check to see if you have an open exhaust sensor port or burned out gasket with your sensor hanging off the pipe. If so the sensor has vibrated loose and is sucking in fresh air and throwing off the emission sensors in the engine. If the sensor is hanging off and you drive, the wiring could break and you might lose the entire device.$$$$
I was driving my RX300 last week and it literally just started to sputter and the sensor fell off the studs, the nuts had rotted off from heat... Easy fix for me luckily a gasket and 2 new studs , but I had to have the dash lights reprogrammed ans well.
Please post back to advise
