    Nearly all of the tools you've seen here are, in my estimation, the best you could ask for. I did heads on my bike (same year and model as yours) in the frame and think I just used a torque adapter...

    I do those same things. My little tailpipe you see up there is a cut down automotive reducer. It's held on with the exhaust clamp from a 2013 Street Glide. :)

    I kind of dig it. Yeah, it's hokey, but it's memorable and looks like it blends in well with the rest of what I can see. I have a set of real, real old crunchy drag pipes that would look right at...

    I used a repop factory setup and made a little turnout. Seems to work OK.

    I think we have a basic disagreement on problem solving.

    The original method of sealing these that HD used is not up to snuff for me. You seem to be recommending... just doing it that way.

    I didn't use original Gasoila. This is a completely different product. Different color, consistency, etc.

    Copper didn't work out for a few reasons. I tried a few ways and a few forms, and it just wasn't working.

    I like this idea. I think Gasoila will be easier to clean up if it doesn't seal, so I will probably try this stuff after that, but before J-B weld.

    I also have some .010" copper sheet on the way....

    OK, a dry install didn't work. Cleaned up the threads and both mating surfaces, had a small blister of bubbles when under pressure.

    Agree. Enlarging that hole is not on my list of things to do. If Larry got his to seal dry, I may do the same and simply put a little plug of RTV or JB in place... if the fuel eats it, it takes two...

    Sure, but the threads don't seal, the lip does, right? How did you seal the hole in your head the factory drilled to rivet it initially?

    No doubt, but that involves sealing up a thing, and then drilling a hole in the thing you just worked so hard to seal.

    Hey Cotten,

    Thanks for the reply.

    I'm not sure I understand the chamfer issue; I'll be sure to examine the mating of seal and nipple when I get the nipple in hand.
