Strike One: The promised clamp that went from Ohio to Colorado won’t be in until Monday. UPS is completely at fault on this one.
Strike Two: The exhaust pipe that was in stock at the hot rod shop came out to be to be 1/2” smaller in diameter than promised.
Strike Three: The NAPA band clamp came in as promised but won’t work with the smaller diameter pipe.
Strike Four: My beloved Dremel tool died. Fortunately I was able to quickly purchase a new one for twice as much as I paid for the original.
The Challenge: Finding a way to fit the two different diameter pipes together for a tight seal. This is going to take a whole load of Redneck Engineering skill to make this work.
Stay tuned. I’m as interested to see how this temporary fix is going to work out as you are.
Once we get back to South Carolina, I’m going to order all new parts from the factory to make the repair like new.
