  • 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?

              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.
