He stated dry which is y I keep saying fuel

I've repaired many dented pipe but as stated be carefull as if u fill it to full it will split the pipe then u have to pound it back togather and reweld it...

I used a 1 gallon oil jug cap wraped in duct tape till a tight fit then duct tape it in the big end of pipe fill 7/8 full with water or a bit more not full! Then I used a quart oil jug cap the same way wrap in duct tape till a tight fit and again tape it in..freeze solid this may take a few attempts

If u can c any light thru the reed tips and cage time to replace

cant see the pic

maybe it is my patience level and since i can get the dents out in minutes with a torch i should have tried more than 5 or so times. never saw any movement with the standard fill and plug method unless the pipe was plugged and FULL of water, then breaks. for the most part i have just watched others with zero results. the ice doesnt get much traction on an oily pipe it seems.

The split went from the factory seam all the way to the pro circuit plate welded in the middle it Kinda followed the edge of the dent

about the only ones that moved dents at all were so full that they split too. with a few bilge plug type xpando plugs i was always able to get them out with the torches fast, so maybe i never really developed the skills for freezing them out. lots of my friends tried it and ended up using the torches more often than not, or just ran with the dents.
