I broke my kooks

Anyone have a better way of patching the hole where this used to be than pulling the motor and calling a welder?

Hmm. I would say maybe cut off that flare add a tube nut, weld the tube nut to the broken piece, tap the header with threads, but even that would require removing the header to access and address the problem, and if you go that far you might as well just weld it right on where it broke off. My only additional tip would be to suspend the engine, and drop the k-member to avoid the hastle of removing the engine from the top.

Nut that would not come off with PB Blaster, and 2ft breaker bar. If your EGR Fails or needs to go away for any reason, get the high-temp jb-weld putty stuff and cap that sucker. It's not strong enough to hold twisting.

If you just want it patched, I will do it for you. Just let me know.

Soon to have some MHS parts, cams, 'luminum block, lower compression, ported heads, autorotor, and need to make long tubes. I have almost all the stuff and need some #42-50s a bypass valve, and maybe a few other things.
