Oversize exhaust nuts

I have recently acquired a Norvin project that has a rear head with an exhaust port that has been machined to a size of 2.0" x 20 TPI, the front head has had the brass insert installed as is outlined in KTB bringing it to a standard 1.88 x 20 TPI, it appeares as though the lack of a rear insert was intentional as the engine has been rebuilt and is propperly mounted in it's frame. My question is, does anyone make an oversized exhaust nut to fit the 2.0 x 20TPI and if so does this pose a threat with the thinner wall of the port?

Thanks

Doubt it, but I have an insert that will bring it back to standard.

Hi,
I made oversized nuts for my HRD chop so I could run 2" exhausts and repair damage to one head. To do this I made up a stepped reducer that screws into the existing exhaust thread (which was machined to a minimum oversize to effect a repair) and then steps up to cope with the 2" pipe. It worked well; I have post some pictures so you can see,

Cheers Paul
