Crack welding ?

3 posts in this topic

Has anyone had success having a cracked exhaust manifold welded?  I have a '73 CJ that needs the passenger side repaired, and would like to know if it is worth the trouble and expense.

 

Thanks!

they should be preheated, welded, post heated..  I've seen lots of welded manifolds over the years, paying 80 dollars to weld a 100 dollar manifold??  hmmm 

when you are done, you now have a welded manifold.

Yeah, I don't love the idea, but the prices for 4v ex. manifolds seems to have gone up lately.   I checked my local Craig's List and Ebay and the only good set I saw was ~$300.00.  Then again, I'm not after concourse originality.  As long as it's serviceable and doesn't crack again I'm good.  Just wanted to know if it was still an acceptable option these days.

Thanks Blizz,
