During the week I also made some rings (will show you later) that Warren is going to weld onto the stubs shown above and machine to the right size and shape, so they fit inside the exhaust nut.
Also this week I had the “collector” made from a 2″ tube.
Cutting it into segments, also made short bits of sleeve, of a tube one size down so that fits inside the 2″ tube. These sleeves going to be welded on one side and on the other I will use rivets to attach them again.
The main reason for doing this, is so the ring can move a bit when the engine and exhaust gets hot. Other reason is that the whole ring can’t be installed as a whole ring as the engine is installed on the engine frame….
