Charlie,

I'd recommend going to the H295 exhaust from Knisley Exhaust. You can check out https://knisleyexhaust.com/helio/helio-courier and see that they do Helio stuff. These would be new FAA/PMA parts. At some point welding old exhaust becomes counter productive. Just my opinion.

I've dealt with Acorn on other stuff and they do a great job. They don't make any new parts for the Helio, so they would have to have yours and repair them.

What happened to just removing the exhaust manifold, then sending it to a shop like Acorn Welding, letting them evaluate it, then if it's repairable and it usually is, at least in my past experience it has. And then if unrepairable you look at buying a new one.

If I remember correctly from past posting they, Acorn can build an entire new exhaust system if necessary.

I found the previous discussion about exhaust stuff here

I don't know but will check into it, provided you have some 480 exhaust parts for sale?

Jason I just got lucky and decided to live in an area where the death rate from the (redacted) flu is low even though quite a few of my neighbors and even some of my relatives have caught the (redacted) Flu a lot of people in the citys and congested areas wear masks. Since I probably had Covid (no test since I didn't get sick enough to go to the doctor) and have now had both shots I usually no longer wear a mask.

Couple of interesting points possibly or not in my defense.

The first is that where I picked up on calling it the (redacted) flu, is the fact that my Cop Nephews wife of 100% Asian extraction and her 100% Asian daughter half being Chinese also an Annapolis graduate call it the (redacted) flu. Being of white privilege I really can't tell one Asian ethnicity from another.

The second is that it seems that most of these attacks have been by blacks against Asians they have some dislike for each other that I don't really understand. One minority hates another minority is that bigotry and if blacks want to be MORE equal than whites what is that. Can't we just get along?

Both my Nephews wife and his daughter I suppose because of his cop background have conceal carry permits. I wonder what would happen if a black guy attempted to beat them up big difference from shooting targets and shooting people. Hopefully we won't argue about the 2nd amendment too.

I will go back and edit my post.

Then moving past that how is your project coming along?

Here is 1 old photo and a recent photo of N5383G on a mask.

I will open them in the queue above as #6 a trigear and the last photo on the mask.

Here in Phoenix just about everyone is wearing masks as they should be.  My vaccination is tomorrow(finally!). Too young to get into the early groups.

Not to get all political on a site that is just for us airplane guys, but here is something you should consider when calling Covid-19 "China Flu" or similar.  When you do so, you attach Asian people to the virus.  You can believe or not believe stories and theories about where CV-19 came from, or evolved from, but really that isn't important.  What IS important is that un-educated simpletons take their frustrations out on people that have ZERO to do with CV-19 simply based upon their ethnicity.  Look at all the videos spreading now of little old asian ladies getting punched in the face by people walking by them on the street.  This may not mean anything to you but it does to me as my son is 1/4 Chinese, my wife is 1/2 Chinese and my sweet mother-in-law is a nice little 87 year-old lady who grew up in Queens NY.  I don't want to see her get beat up by some prick who is bent out of shape about the "China virus".  Please lets keep the political views absent from our quality discussions about our favorite airplanes. ;)

It looks like I may have a crack where the #6 exhaust stack is welded into the exhaust pipe on my
H-391B.
It has been welded before but doesn't look like a professional job.
Any recommendations for a aircraft exhaust repair shop in case I need one?
Anyone have a left side exhaust assembly for sale?
Thanks
