700 jardine clamp repair

PostAuthor: Sharkbait55 » Fri Apr 28, 2017 9:59 am

[album][/album]Just picked up some used jardine pipes and I think they are the slash rumbles. It's the basic one with the baffle blocking the air passage. They had a bit of surface rust that I was able to sand off...my question is where the front header connects to the slip on exhuast. It rusted with a hole. The clamp bolts are very weak. I don't know how to weld. I was thinking I could get a co worker to weld it for me. Can I cut the clamp off and slip another clamp over it. Maybe use some jb weld to repair the rust.

The small pipe is in good condition just the chrome has rusted a way...the area is at the bottom right corner that I didn't get a good pic of.

It won't stand up to the vibrations and crack.
