Hello,
(Sorry for my bad english )
Im coming here to ask for your help
I got a problem recently with my engine which works perfectly except for my exhaust that is hanging. The threads which hold my exhaust are broken, i can't anymore screw into it so my exhaust isn't reducing the noise that is pretty LOUD
I wanted to know if there were a way to weld my exhaust directly on the place it should be? Does aluminium and iron weld well together? Otherwise could i repair it with some kind of glue that would resist to high temp?
Thanks for your help and i hope you will understand

Depending on what the stripped threads where I guess studs were once, maybe thread insert could fix the threads. Really a drill press would be best to cut proper hole size. This is using special off regular size (special) bit for Helicoil insert made of steel. Though there has to be enough material to drill over size for a thread insert, so all depends what you have to work with.
