Pipe is cracked about 2" below the manifold connection. The cat system from Rovers North is not the genuine part and "cannot" be used in California Has anyone repaired/welded one of these? any help would be appreciated.

 

Thanks, Dino

You may be able to get it welded if the crack is where I am picturing. Could you post pics?

If it's the exaust itself then yes should be mild steel so I would think you can get welded - if you can get access.

I had a hole just before one of the Oxy sensors, that was fooling the sensor and causing the engine to run Rich and fail smog. Welded up no problem, and car them passed.

Mine broke off in the same location one day.  It could have been welded.  I wonder why there is increased stress in that location.  Was yours on the passenger side?

JFuller - yes passenger side. Looks like the weld should be the fix. New cats we can't use in Cali are 700.00 bux!! :huh:

I've welded several with no problem. I welded the one on mine in about the same place when I first got the truck almost 10 years ago and it's still going strong.
