How hot does the exhaust pipe get if there's a cooling issue?
I had the carbs rebuilt by WFO, who did a great job by the way, and just got everything back together. I'm going to run it on the hose in the morning, but I was wondering how hot the exhaust pipe would get if there's a cooling issue. I'm pretty sure everything is back the way it's supposed to be, but since the exhaust temp sensor is relocated I don't want to rely on that alone. From what I've read by the time that goes off it's usually too late anyway. I have an infrared thermometer I can monitor the pipes temp with, but I wasn't sure where the temp should be on the hose. What external exhaust pipe temperature would indicate a problem?

It would be hot like touching an exhaust pipe on a car. It'll sizzle water if you dribble a little on it or you'll have to immediately pull you hand away if you touch it.
Normally you can touch the exhaust if things are working ok. It'll feel nice and hot/warm but you can touch it.

Got it, thanks. Pipe was cool to the touch on the hose and ran fine, all clear
