Thumbs up Brazing Aluminum

Just thought that I would pass this on to the forum, to make people
aware that brazing Aluminum can be cheap, fun and easy! All that
you need for this is a Propane torch and aluminum low temperature
brazing rods from Lowe's or Home Depot. Here's an example of my
intake manifold that I sawed across the center section, so that I
could turn the carb mounting end to create a slight angle. That allowed
my air cleaner to mount on my Mikuni carb, and clear the frame. Here
are some photo's.

Change is inevitable and progress is OPTIONAL!
