RE: 1800 rpm vibration solved!

I had the rattling cat-shield problem on my previous 5KCST, I fixed it by putting
a big ol' hose clamp around each end of the shield and tightening them up.
Might be easier than removing it...

Anyway, they ended up just welding the ends of the shield to the pipe and it
only stays put for about a year. Next time I'm going to have the shield removed
as I really don't generate alot of heat in the cat anyway(it somehow took a hike
3 years ago:-)) So to all the other listers with this same 1800 rpm vibration, please
check your cat. conv. shield when it's hot, using a tool-not your hand to see if there's
any movement or play. HTH,
