For my entire life, I have been a glass half full person. I can usually see the good in everything. But no way did I see how rust could be a good thing. How can rust in anyway be seen as my friend. Really? Well.
This spring, when you got WECATHEM going, her manifold had a high pressure leak. The manifold had been cleaned and presure tested, but after some runs a small leak started. I cleaned it up and applied some JB weld to it. Which helped a ton. But a small area was still leaking.
Now, it would only leak at around 2700 RPM. Which is extreme ish for the W. But a funny thing has happened over the summer. The leak is gone. And it appears that the only explanation is my new pal RUSTY! Yup, as the summer has marched on, a small amount of rust must have closed up the small hairline crack.
Now the only problem is, since Rusty seems to be helping me out, is keeping the rest of his family out of my boats. Like the Griswold’s, the rest of the family could be rather a pain!
