[T3] Mmmmmm Donuts....


Is there nothing they cant do??

Well... they dont seal the lower heat exchangers well!  Verdict is in on the
use of RTV to help them out and sure enough, even the high temp stuff is not
high enough to withstand the heat down there.  I did find a silicone based
tape, about an inch wide, red, that wraps on itself that is designed for the
high temps and I used it this time to help out the dilapidated donuts.  the
problem is I grabbed this stuff when it was being thrown out and I dont know
the brand or where it came from... yea! I hate that too!
But keep an eye out as there is stuff like this out there, maybe McMaster
Carr or the like sells some.  Ill see how it holds out next summer.
