EXHAUST PIPE LEAK

Post by BENJEE2112 »







I must have bounced/scratched my exhaust pipe. I have a small hole in it. It doesn't really bother me because I kind of like hearing it a little better. Is it a bad thing to not fix it? I think I remember years ago with car engines that it can burn the rings or something crucial. Any thoughts on this?

I will hopefully be down there in about 3 yrs. for retirement thinking somewhere between Spring Hill and North Port. I like baseball and will root for the Rays at the Trop :(
This covid sheet might get me out of here earlier.
