    Cause he is old school and a master of his trade! There was reasoning behind it but I don't remember at the moment. I wish I could braze like that.

      I think its because brazing is lower heat and less likely to warp the flange.

      There tons of room on the passnger side for large to jumbo sized stepped headers. Its the drivers side that gets interesting. The drivers side on my car took more than double the time to design and I only have 1 3/4".

            Thanks for the heads up. Bookmarked it after about 10 pages. Lots more to go.

              and stronger. brazing is pretty, but it looks like he heats the entire flange and brazes like you'd solder a copper pipe. If he's old school, that would make sense because Mig didn't come into vogue until the 70s.... and then there were lots of brittle welds - thus tons of cracking.
              Doing it all wrong since 1966

                        this fairly much delivers me to the existing day. I have some back revocation perform to complete up, areas are seated here looking at me to get to perform.
