      Hello, I sent my pipes and canister out to Jet-Hot to get coated.
Before I sent them I was assured by 3 different people there that the plug
the canister before they blast it. Well now the problem, There is blast
material coming out of the canister. I keep getting more and more out. I
contacted them today and they are picking up the canister tomorrow to look
at it.

      I need some opions, there is now way I can see that I can run with
this canister now. What do I do now.

      THANKS

With the grit that was used for blasting, and if it is the original (factory
canister) you will never get it all out with the baffles and everything else
that could restrict it in there. I would be leary on some of that blasting
material getting sucked back into the cylinders, causing more damage than it
is worth trying to use the old unit. Wait and see what the blasting company
comes back saying, but I would expect them to at least pay part of the costs
of replacing the unit, and a free coating job afterwards. Maybe everything
would be OK on the otherhand, with Murphy's law, you might be 40 miles from
civilization with a sled broken down.

Maybe someone else has an opinion on this (not on this message board), that
may be more useful.

Cheers,

Dale
