Garage
Re: exhaust fumes

Pull down all the sheet rock and have "wall-tight" spray foam installed then double mil vapor barrier with all seams taped, then re-sheet rock with tight seams and corners, tape and double mud and caulk all edges. This will seal the entire garage against exhaust leakage and bring it up to current code. See the Mike Holmes website for details and brands used.

Re: exhaust fumes

Funny, I just watched that same episode of holmes inspection. Good advice. Garage needs to be completely sealed from the house, vapor and fumes will go through the smallest opening.

In addition get rid of the carburetor and switch to fuel injection. More power, better mpg, more reliability, cleaner, easier to start when cold, etc.

Re: exhaust fumes

Try leaving it outside after you get back, once it cools bring it in.
