Cracked pipe
« on: May 25, 2006, 05:40:13 AM »
I'm thinking this Drak I'm picking up may have a cracked expansion pipe. Is it best to gas weld this or can I use a 110v wire feed? I don't have a small bottle torch setup but do have a light duty Lincoln I could take along for on site repair.

Either one.

I think (pure spectulation, as I've never brazed) gas brazing isn't as touchy about contamination from the inside of the pipe as the welder will be.

I always just ran a bead over cracks with the welder and never had any issues.

As it turns out the other ATVR Drak of Jerry's has the crack not the one I'm getting. I offered to weld it for him if he brings it along to KP, Wy.
