Re: Exhaust Elbow

PAULCR1: Not sure what you ever did with your exhaust elbow but a recent issue with excessive heat on my elbow led to me unwrapping and seeing how it was put together. Very simple standard threaded pipe vs. the $200 westebeke elbow I have seen out there. Let me know if you want/need a picture and I will grab it. Very simple.

My big problem is that I have heat at this elbow that actually caused the muffler wrap to smolder and smell (that is hot). I plan on shooting temperatures to see what is going on and thus far have cleaned everything to ensure no back pressure (except for where manifold joins elbow)....and all this happens at 160F before a major over-heat. I am going to put post out on specific topic. Ever have this?
