The sound insulation in my motor cover (dog house) has come loose. What type of adhesive should I use to glue it back into place??? :confused:

3M super 77 is a good adhesive that works with foam. Some adhesives will melt foam.

JB, if the budget and / or the wife allows, for less than $100 you can get a spray-on (bedliner) type application that quitens the noise significantly. :twocents:

Do you think most wives would have a clue that you did something to the INSIDE of the engine cover?

I used the 3m spray-on adhiesive in the spring. It's still working.

Overton's has a kit with insulation, adhesive, and tape

Hmm... I wasn't able to find it on the site either. Last time I looked for it there it was very hard to find but this time I couldn't find it. Maybe they stopped carrying it.

Here it is.

I/O Noise Reduction Kit (http://www.overtons.com/modperl/overtons/detail/pdetail2.cgi?r=detail_view&item_num=25005)

I installed it last winter. Does a good job.

I was planning to do a sound insulation this fall. Which is better, the I/O kit or the bedliner treatment?

Depends what you want out of it. The bedliner looks a lot slicker. The I/O kit is very thick and easy to repair seamlessly (with foil tape) if it gets torn. The I/O kit probably suppresses more noise than the bedliner does. But from what I understand, the bedliner does a pretty good job at that, too.

One thing the bed liner does not do well is protect from heat. I just did the inside of my Jeep. I have to say that although it helped, I'm sure it's not as good as what you put on your dog box Tx.

Does the extra insulation cause an increase of heat around the engine?

It stands to reason that it would. I just glued my old stuff back up last year. If it comes down again Iíll probably go with a kit like Doug has. Just look at how clean it makes your spark arrester look..

It doesn't hurt that that flame arrestor was brand-spankin' new, never been run. Be advised that the stuff from overtons is nice and thick. 91 and up boxes don't have much clearance to begin with (note my cutout for the flame arrestor after the new intake was installed).

My engine runs just south of 160 just like it always has (knock wood).
