Powermax Asbestos?

Recommended Posts

nighteye
Hi all; I have a 9020, (73 or74). I noticed tonight that the muffler is wrapped in a piece of white fiberous material with a piece of tin wrapped around it. I never noticed it before, but now it is loose and trying to slide out. Could anyone tell me if that is asbestos? (sure looks that way to me) Is there a replacement material that anyone has had any luck with? I also have a white sheet of something that lines the underside of the battery cover. (it also looks like asbestos to me) Its starting to crumble and I wonder if anyone has ever fixed theirs somehow. Any input would be greatly appreciated. Ken

I don't know if this is factory and I don't know if it's asbestos, but I had a very noisy Detroit Diesel in a big truck that I wrapped with some header wrap out of the Summit catolog and it realy helped with the heat and noise. This stuff came in a roll and I apllied it then sprayed it with an arosol can of adhesive that came with it and was very pleased with the results.
