    GPR/XLT Exhaust manifold nipple

    On the #1 side of the exhaust manifold is a nipple for cooling water (guessing).

    I know it is a OEM part but there is very little chance my dealer is going to have it in stock. Any ideas on where I can buy something like it ?

    What is the proper way to install it back in ? I was thinking a little JB Weld around the outside and then press it in.

    I removed this hose on my ski a couple of years ago so

    so you could simply block up the opening on the manifold - not sure if JB weld will hold up on a part like this that heats up

    you will also need to block off the other end on the pipe

    a lot of us have been reducing water flow to the exhaust manifold - this allow it to run hotter - hotter pipe means the gases will travel faster

    I used JB weld on my exhaust manifolds holding in my EGT sensor on my rc stuff and the are getting up to a couple of hundred degress and never had a problem.

    Ok - it is getting blocked off. Would Hi-temp RTV do it ?
