Thank you all.. :028:

I'll leave it soaking in penetrating stuff for a few days, got plenty of other stuff to be doing. The radiator is coming along nicely and all the brackets have been rubbed down and undercoated using etch primer..  :002:

I'll tackle the lambada when I'm in the mood and when I have the correct tool..

I have the engine to clean and new studs to fit so I won't be bored..

 :020: Defo 6 point.  Never noticed typo   :462:

And the forces of nature will have somewhat welded the thing which is why the right tool beats a bodge.

So, exhaust is now off and the full extent of the botch someone made taking it off and re fitting last time is apparent..

2 thread holes are missing threads in the first 3 to 4mm one has a snapped stud in it but there's enough to get a good purchase. All studs re fitted and looking good.

Also, I'm guessing the 2 inner welds on the joining pipes are not factory weld, bulky, lumpy & not neat at all.. am I to assume the exhaust must have suffered the cracking..

Good job on the stud debacle. Id say your guess on the headers is probably correct. Not ideal😳. It normally wouldnt bother me to much if it the rest of the work was legitimate . But going by the standard of the workmanship so far🥴. Id be getting those bad boys checked or even redone.

I'll have them cleaned and checked before re fitting.. Cheers...  :028:

That stud that has broken inside, how many good threads are now gripping the new stud? Don't want to be ripping those threads out when tightening the nut. The broken stud really needed to come out, but not a simple job & easy to go wrong.

With 5 other studs all good and tight I figure they'll hold the exhaust, having said that, the 6th got a good grip, eased it tight quarter turn at a time, pretty sure It'll do the job. Can't be any worse than when I started..  :084:  :002:
