Header pipe repair recommendations

Recommended Posts

I need to get my header pipe repaired, it has a small dent and has been pushed up (from the ground)during a crash.

Can anyone recommend a good place to send for repair?20170828_205140.jpg20170828_205122.jpg

Take it off

Make room in the bottom of your freezer

Fill the header with water, closing off only one end; does not need to be water tight

Stand the header up in your freezer so the dent is on the very bottom.

Freeze it for a couple days

Dent should be gone.

If not, do it again.

That size dent is no causing any problems.....so don't worry about it

You can also wrap the dented area so that the wrapped area freezes last. That will allow the ends to freeze first, plugging the ends, forcing the dent to pop out. I fixed a dent much worse than yours using this method. It took several tries.
