How do you connect two pieces of exhaust without welding?

Let’s dive right in.

  1. Apply an Epoxy Bond. If the hole is small enough, you can use epoxy to seal the leak.
  2. Wrap it with Exhaust Tape. An exhaust tape is an ideal solution if you are dealing with a larger hole.
  3. Use an Exhaust Clamp.
  4. Cover the Hole with an Aluminum Patch.

Can you clamp exhaust pipes together?

Exhaust clamps are specialized for holding two pipes together under extreme heat. Lesser clamps can stretch and corrode more easily with high heat, so you’ll want to use one of these three kinds of clamps to keep your muffler pipes tight and free of noise, and they are band, U-bolt, or V-band clamps.

Can I use flex pipe for exhaust?

The flex pipe is made of metal strips woven into a lattice, and thus can withstand exhaust gas heat. Higher quality flex pipes will be made of stainless steel.

Can you use high temp silicone on exhaust?

Permatex Ultra Copper Maximum Temperature RTV Silicone Gasket Maker is designed for high operating temperatures, turbocharger applications, and exhaust systems. The most advanced, high temp RTV silicone gasket maker available. Sensor-safe, low odor, non-corrosive.

Can you drive with exhaust hanging off?

You can drive with a broken exhaust, whether that is safe or even legal is the larger issue at hand. Any problems with your exhaust should be given immediate and efficient attention; whether that be a few cracks in the exhaust pipe or if it is hanging off the back of your car.

What does an exhaust flex pipe do?

Flex Pipes minimize the shaking, vibration and impacts on the vehicle exhaust system, they are made to support and protect the exhaust system by absorbing most of the vibrations.

Is flexible exhaust pipe good?

they don’t flow aswell as a normal pipe but better than a cracked manifold. When i worked in the exhaust industry we used them on most the exhausts we made for the likes of Aston Martin etc. so well worth it.

Can I use silicone to seal exhaust?

That’ll be fine. The factory just specifies a normal silicone RTV translucent stuff for the pipe/silencer joint. If the joint is manufactured with some precision, like on the Arrow pipes, there’s no need to add any sealant.

Can I use silicone on an exhaust?

Hi temp silicone will be fine.

What’s the best way to join two exhaust pipes together?

Just has a tailpipe, muffler, and a flange that connects to the header. What would be the best way to join these pipes, aside from welding it? Each of these pipes has like a 2″ OD. Can I use a tailpipe expander and just make a lapjoint and use normal exhaust clamps? Or would it be better to just use a band clamp and butt them together?

Is it possible to vent two exhaust fans through a single soffit?

The plastic dampers that come with ceiling mounted bath fans or those on Fantech fans just do not prevent air backflow well enough to tie multiple fans together. Base on my air flow measurements the ALDES dampers has reduced the airflow only about 10%. One last recommendation is DO NOT vent bathroom vents through a soffit.

What’s the difference between inside and outside muffler clamps?

The only difference is, the inside diameter on both ends would be 2″. Your outside diameter 2″ pipes would fit inside. Use two muffler clamps to attach. You’ll need to match the outside diameter of the butt joint, but they would probably be 2 1/8″ clamps.

What should I do when trial fitting exhaust pipe?

When trial-fitting the pipes, support the vehicle on a lift or stands and allow the rear suspension to hang unloaded. If you plan to use a crossover pipe with a dual-pipe system, make sure that the crossover clears the driveshaft even with the rear suspension unloaded.
