    Re: It Started With A Leak.............

    Oh, joy, they came today, the Y pipe was here yesterday.
    It going to be fun hooking it up under the car.
    ;D



    I have two choices, reducer cones,

    Or this, which would make removal of the Y pipe so easy.

        Zing! Very nice, I was looking at your picture over in the tech section but had no answer to your question.

          Today, Hedders painted and installed.
          I was dead lucky, the VHT paint never marked or chipped during the installation,
          and they flopped about some knocking against everything.




          This Hedman kit for 82-92 Camaros is really good, they include everything, even the small headed header bolts.

            looking good Malc!

            (yea - DWB - that front cover / timing chain interference is a big bucket of suck!)
            There's always something new to learn.

              It is pretty tight in threre, chain to block as well but I could not find any interference.
              I also turned the motor by hand, plugs out, and I never heard any ghastly scrapings.


              I am in limbo again waiting on Customs to deliver my exhaust connector and four feet of 2.5"
              Summit tubing.

              In the meantime I will be plumbing an apartment,
              and as usual I will be in some kind of hole or corner doing it.

                  I bought the exact same header/y-pipe configuration you have on my old camaro. Great value!

                    Much easier to install than I thought, just raised the motor an inch or so and both headers dropped in.
                    I have some misalignment to the 3" Flowmaster and need a tool to separate the pipe I am connecting to,
                    and bring it forward and add a little twist.
                    Luckily someone near me has such a tool.
                    I need to get back to welding practise but when I am not on the car I am on something else.
                    Ask me how I like to do plumbing...........
                    ;D

                      I have been away two weeks, the customs man sent my last piece the day after I left.
                      This week I got the Y pipe finished up, my welds are like eagle poop, I have not done any
                      welding since I was twenty, anyway it is one lump now and in place.
                      It will have to come off later for weld grinding and painting.
                      Timing cover leak is done as well.
