    Default Interesting repair video

    I just found this on YouTube. I'm not sure if anyone has posted it before.

    I see a lot of bent tubing where it compresses the tube at the cluster. I replace these. Very few bent tubes I have seen have been able to be straightened this way because somewhere the integrity of the tube is compromised.

    I'm loving the "Take wet asbestos...". Been a while since you had that laying around the repair shop, I hope!
