Thread: Repop exhaust pipes for 51

    Repop exhaust pipes for 51

    Gentlemen,

    Which are good addresses for qualitative repops (or oem!) exhaust pipes for a 1951 ohv?

    Certainly dimensions, curves and surface finishing are main charachteristics for a troubleless replacement of the original pipes.

    Actually I am only needing the rear ("s") one as the lower edge is severly corroded and I have quite lot of loss of exhaust in the interface to the y-pipe...

    Ah, important! Seller should be fine to ship to Europe!

    Thx in advance for all recommendations...

    Dennis Corso's rear pipe is very close, a good fit I have heard. The 'bell' is slightly different at the cylinder head exhaust port, noticeable only to the discerning eye.
    I have a Dixie rear I can show you side by side a little later today if you like. It's very good as well.

    Have you tried sealing the connection at the Y with a hi-temp RTV silicone sealer?
    It's the way to go. Apply a healthy head to inside of the Y, insert S pipe. Let it cure before cleaning, use a razor knife to cut away excess. Hardly noticeable.

    Also, what is the original finish of your pipes? Corso offers chrome. Silver paint can be done by yourself, as I showed in my build thread.

    I simply don't understand why someone who reproduces a part doesn't make it right?

    It's the unwritten law of the aftermarket; "Thou shoult not make parts that fit without modification."

    Installing exhaust on an old Harley is like tryin' to cut your own hair. Do yourself a favor and find some OEM pieces and it will lessen the pain. Good ones come up on Fleaballs......

    I had leaks at nearly every joint of my Servicar, I used the high temp silicone as suggested by Bigincher and all of the leaks are now sealed and difficult to see. Seems to work really good ( and cheap).
