A couple weeks ago you gave your thoughts on what could be causing a hard loud noise when I accelerating. To make a long story short, I discovered though research that it was the muffler coming apart.

That'll do it. Once while I was washing the T , the motor got a little damp and back fired when starting. Sounded like a .357 from a 2 inch snubby . All the Latinos ducked behind their cars. Then all I saw were these heads poking up to see if they were clear.

George you're lucky you weren't swarmed by police, SWAT and the FBI with their AR-15's gunning you down!

True Tim, LAPD takes loud,gunshot sounds seriously. Here's a my pic of the unraveled muffler. I couldn't re-assemble it and had to buy a new one, then had the seems welded.

My muffler looks just like that top picture. It came apart last fall and was put on the "I'll fix it next year" list.

I tack weld in a few places at each end to keep that from happening.
