well the repower has a muffler that wont fit the hood, I priced a new muffler, decided to use an old stack I had around. It needed to be shortened and a new flange.


the stockpile


all trimmed, and a new flange made from stock, gasket for reference


havent tig'ed in a year, and sort of a pain welding thin/thick but it came out ok. I would call it a 55 mph weld, that is about as fast as i would trust it

if you can stick and braze you can tig. lot more control and fun. If you are near by feel free to come practice. I need to weld a plate to the 2 side fins for support and make a bracket to bolt to one of the head bolts for support. will do that tomorrow and drill the 2 holes in the flange. will snap a pic when done..then 1 solder connection to make and it can go back together

The picture of your stockpile made me drool!:drl My stock is all leftover parts of farm machinery, junk gt's and stuff I've found along the road! And, it's all either rusty or covered in seven layers of paint.:Q Oh well, poor people have poor ways.C|: Looking forward to the installed pics, should look slick!dOd

We are starting to do TIG at school, its pretty hard but like many things you practice and you will get betterdOd Auto darkening helmets also help you do cleaner looking welds because you can see where you are starting. Do you use one?
