Re: Volvo Penta MD5 Exhaust Pipe Elbow

Boat did well in the storm and I removed the pipe on Sunday. I had dreaded this, but it worked out fine. Two allen bolts loosened up nicely and I pulled the elbow off. I contacted a local welder today and will show him the piece tomorrow and see what he can do. I will you know the progress.
Stay tuned.
Greg

Re: Volvo Penta MD5 Exhaust Pipe Elbow

I left the elbow with a welder over the winter and just got it back. Looks good. They ground it out and welded a piece of stainless in, maybe 5 inches by two inches. Should do the trick. Cost me $120.00 for the work. Any thoughts of a heat resistant paint for it, or is it worth it. Hope everyone else found their solution.
Regards,
Greg
