  • Carb nipple question

    So a while back I had an issue with popping in the exhaust. I lifted the fuel tank and saw the nipple on the manifold was no longer plugged. It had part of a plug on it but the top part was gone. I bought some new plugs and put one on it. Everything went back to normal. Took a ride this Saturday with the wife and on the leg home I heard the popping again. By the time I got home I was in a bad mood so I just parked it. I checked it yesterday and the same thing. Top of the plug is missing but this time the rest of the plug is coming apart also. What can I use to plug this thing that is going to hold up more than a few weeks?

          A wad of 5min epoxy stick has held up for years here, just be sure things are clean..........................

              So this is your friend when the wife travels? Maybe not, could be hairier.

                In case you're thinking of crimping the end before soldering to make it easier, I wouldn't. That was my plan, but that material is more brittle than I expected. I just ended up with a mess.

                  Is this the *original* ironman from the old site?

                  Nope. Didn't know there was one on the old site.
