Flex pipe might be good in this spot

That was my thought using some of the flex pipe if welding wasn't an option.

OK well it is killing me the way that it is. So I took the day off work to play in the shop. I think I'm going to try to cut the flange Goethe muffler off an make what ever bends I need then try to weld it back together. If this doesn't work I'll be no further be hind and I'll just go get some flex pipe and or clamps depending on how bad I screw it up.

Well it didn't really take all day. It's a day off so I thought it was a good time to have a few cold ones along the way(helps my imagination) and this is what I can up with. I used the holes for the students type shocks to make a piece of angle for a new bracket. I got out the torches heated and bent the pipe just a little bit. Got the old chop saw out cut the head pipe to be sure of a nice straight cut. Turn the welder down all the way. Put it all together and this is what I got.

I agree. I use floppy sanding wheels the result for a nice finish can be flawless and it don't beat in the weld as much that will cause weak spots to break. If my weld is going to break it will be while I'm having fun not working in the shop

Nice job especially with a stick welder, I myself would of cut the flange off this way you and concentrate the heat on the thicker metal and let it flow into the thinner metal. another trick is if you blow a hole in something find a piece of brass or copper for backing the weld will not stick to it and you can fill up a hole or gap pretty easy.
