    951 exhaust leak

    I have a 951 98 XPL that I just finished re-building the engine on. It seems that I have an exhaust leak. Do I have to pull the hole exhaust or can I just maneuver the tail cone?

    where is the exhaust leak? if its between the cones then you need a new copper seal...

    pull it off, make sure the seal is not kinked...if it is not kinked, dab a little grease to hold it in place...if you have a buddy around, use their extra set of hands to set the large clamp....don't trust the clamp to self aligh it, it WILL not ceet right if you don't use a 2nd set of hands........took me 2 tries when I broke mine apart....
