Exhaust Work

Post by slumley1 » Sat Sep 20, 2014 2:15 pm

I have an 85 CJ7 with a Chevy 350. It has dual exhaust coming off manifolds but it's rusty and leaks. I need to get the exhaust replaced from the manifold gaskets all the way back. I live in montgomery county but don't mind driving for good work and an honest price.

Where should I go and how much can I expect to pay?

Thanks in advance!

Are you thinking about full length headers? I couldn't find any that fit between the frame rails. Had to go with block huggers. A shop in Eldersburg bent the rest.
How did i spend four grand on parts in one month?

I was planning on just redoing the exhaust off the stock manifolds but the mechanic called me and said there was so much frame rust that he didn't think I should the work and that it may not be safe to drive. Not sure what to do. Is there anyone on here that fixes or welds frames? I thought Manic Mechanic did that type of work but I can't remember his first name and can't ind his number in my phone. Any thoughts?

I'm thinking it was Tommy.

That was Tommy. He's unavailable currently. Mike at One Fine Wrench in Randallstown can handle that no problem. 410-922-8080.

I'd be happy to take a look at what you have, because some frame rust calls for 'find a new frame', and some is readily curable. For example, if the holes that the belly pan bolt to are shot, it's easy to fix, but if the frame is rotten under control arm mounts it can be a tough call.

PM me a number, I'm in Westminster, can look this weekend if you like and give you my opinion.

Worst case, you can swap everything you have that's good to a better frame in under 100 hours if you can do the work yourself... and that would include cleaning and painting the new to you frame.

I do frame repair. I need to fix my plasma cutter. It has been acting up. Let me check it out and see if i can fix it. If not, you pay to fix the cutter, I will fix your frame. Let me know.
