Unfortunately, on the A-4, the bolts holding this flange do not go all the way through. So you can't use a thru bolt. After looking at the flange on my engine, being that is is a very low stress...

Re: Pipe to hose to muffler

CCRiders, I am currently going through the exact same thing on a C-30 with an A4. I replaced the exhaust flange with a new one from Moyer, and it was 1 1/4" NPT. I then pieced together a 316 SS setup...

Re: Catalina 30 standing rigging

Point taken, thanks for the advice. For the difference in cost, I could buy two sets of rigging and keep spares. Or, like you said, keep a few Hi-mods in the oh-sh!t box in case I need to make...
