The connector pieces are all copper , has anyone tried to solder them together, I know the exhaust mani gets hot , but hot enough to melt the solder?
To answer your question. Yes I have done that and it was an epic failure. I soldered a crack I had in my old exhaust pipe ( smacked the muffler somehow) where the weld broke. The thing was fine for all of three minutes. Solder melted right off. However, I have used "quick steel" on old car exhausts before and it worked fine. You can get some from any local auto parts shop.
