Exhaust work

#1 Post by Nick S » Tue Oct 06, 2015 5:09 pm

Wondering if anyone out there knows of or has gone to a shop around here that will repair a pipe for a sled. After dealing with the deafening drone of engine noise last season (where ear plugs were needed even with a helmet), I'm getting around fixing the exhaust this year. Have a used y-pipe on the way since the flange was badly cracked all the way 'round. The damaged manifold also damaged and cracked the mating flange/ball joint for the exhaust pipe. Since the part is not made by AC anymore (89 sled), looks like I'll have to get this piece (the ball joint) cut off and replaced. Anyone know of a place where they can do this sort of work?

If you can find the ball end of the pipe, I would be happy to cut the old one off and weld the new one on for you

Al's does have the exhaust:

OEM# 0612-038

But welding is definitely a cheaper option.

Don't know if the ball sizes match up, but I have a muffler from an 600 XLT that is okay at the ball, but the rest of it is shot.

Thanks for the help guys! I have found a repair kit on Ebay that should work. Summit, if you could pm me your contact info, I'll try to get in touch with you in the next week or two as parts come in.
