That's a little odd because normally the hot air comes out the side vent.

I would double check the vent on that side and make sure the flow isn't
obstructed somehow.

If it isn't, tape would probably be the only choice. The unfortunate
part of that is that it will make maintenance more difficult...

Hot Air flow
Since it has gotten hot in my area, I have notice heat coming out of the creaks on the righ hadside near my knee. The heat is coming from the junctions of the casing near the fuel tank. Is there any way to stop the flow of hot air out of this

    You point in the direction of where the exhaust comes out of the engine anyway. 2:) The more heat comes out the better. It is possible to use Exhaust Wrap to isolate the exhaust. This way the gas inside is warmer and will float even better. T

      I found the following messages about the exhaust wrapping searching in history. Not much to go on but both posts mentioned it to be useful. http://autos.groups.yahoo.com/group
