So, between tropical storms (sheeeesh!!) I decided to gut my cats. I got all ready (built the new compressor, cleaned the garage floor, got the truck from the warehouse, help cut up trees), jacked the truck up and voila...

 

I BET IT'S 9/16!!

Er... those are welds there, Erik.

SO? YOU GOT A HAMMER!

Er... Yeah, but how will you put em back on?

SUPERGLUE?

Er... Nope.

SILICON?

Nah.

BRONZE GASKET SEALER?

No.

<silence>

Ahem.

BABY POO?

 

 

:jester:

 

 

So. By hands, now. How many of yous gutted cat guys cut 'em off and welded 'em yourselves?

Are they that much different than the cat/Y-pipe setup on a standard fullsize??

 

I simple took a reall long screwdriver, some people us a pry bar, and a small hammer and brok eup the honeycomb. Just stick the bar in one end and bash on it. Periodically I'd empty the junk into a bag. Just be careful about breathing in that dust. :eek:

With the stock pipes, the drivers side piece has too much curve to get in there with a straight rod. Some have found it easier to cut the pipes to remove them. I was able to remove both pipes without cutting. But the drivers side pipe needed cutting for access for the "cleaning" process. Then weld back up and reinstall.

I have also seen someone post about using a plumbers pipe snake and a drill, thus avoiding cutting the pipes.
