When the baffles plugged up on my 76 GT550 I wrapped the baffles in steel wool because it was cheap and easy to replace. I was getting ready to leave work one day and one of my least favourite customers came in; a real know-it-all jerk and he commented on my bikes 'tough idle'. I told him it had a hot cam and he didn't know the difference. LOL
I put 21000 miles on that bike and once I figured out to put unleaded in it instead of leaded regular and used GM points grease to make the points last the bike was completely trouble free. It is the one bike I wish I could have kept.
