Hey guys,

Well I finally got to some yard clean up at Golden Cove today. I used the 446 because the caster is still on the 448. When I started the 446 the exhaust pipe cracked apart on one side. I have removed it but was wondering what advice you all could give. Should I try and have the pipe I have welded or should I try and get a new one made up?

Either way it shouldn't cost you much to have it welded up.

I would make a new pipe/flange for the other side at the same time. If the other side is still intact whoever welds it can use it to make sure the bends are correct.

Look in Summitracing.com or jegs.com for exhaust pipe. They sell a lot of pieces that already have 90 degree bends in them. Im sure you could make something work if you start with all new pipe.

I just spoke with Boomer. One option I may have is repairing it like the older style. They used to use a 1" x 2 1/2" threaded nipple coming out of the block and clamp the exhaust pipe to that. I should be able to install a nipple and cut my pipe above the weld and clamp it to a nipple :grin: . Thanks for the help Boomer :thumbsup:
