Re: new to forum
You could always do something like this (pics)
Go buy a male/female 45Deg 3/4" elbow piece, a 3/4" to 1/2" reducer, a piece of 3/4" to join those, an aluminum shim from a pop can or something to fit the intake pipe to the elbow to stop the solder and for a good fit.
Solder everything like you would copper pipes.
And this is a strong piece of pipe!
I love my Motor Bicycle, I love Beer, I'll try not to like them both at once.
