No measurements. Pretty much just fit the piece to pick up what existed, but I will say that I have pushed it a bit on some twisty roads and it certainly handles as it should.

Well the project is still alive.. stainless exhaust stub, so header can be held on with springs. Rather than try and hammer a flange, I ran a bead with the TIG around the end and then chucked in the lathe. Will have to make sure the springs seal it well enough to keep interloping O2 molecules away from the air/fuel sensor.
Also making cables. Made a new solder pot from leftover bung welding practice bits and made a birdcage tool. So much easier when you have the solder pot.

I retired my pipe end cap. Too lazy to make a holder, but admire your design. I would be tempted to copy it but actually like the way the alloy one heats up quickly.
I bought some of this flux and maybe it’s just my imagination, but it seems to work way better than the old tin of paste. I have 2 of those vice grip clamps that I inherited. Never been used... I should take them out of the drawer and hang them next to the drill press.
