been gone a while and quite sad to see all of the spam on the group using Thunderbird to read it.
ok to the gritty
i have a stainless exhaust ( .039 wall )on my bike, brand new and shiny.
it is a multi piece affair and i want the joints ( slip joints ) to be relatively rigid and sealed. some of them are quite close to the head.
my options are to tig weld the joints using my 150sth .
this would fit my needs well.
my other option would be to back purge and braze it with silver braze and tons of flux
i plan to ceramic coat the entire thing inside and out after wards i will be doing this on the bike for the most part. material is .039 all joints are slip joints with @ 1" of overlap
i will be adding a crossover to the three main header branches , but will tig this off the bike after i lock down the joints and add a couple of supports any comments ?
if i was to tig weld it , what should i use for my pulse settings, I have not yet tig welded with my little beauty( i have plenty of convention tig experience in the shop on a older synchro 350, but no pulsing )
