    I'm beginning the machining of a rubber isolated, cradle type tuned pipe mount for this boat. Both the tuned pipe & it's mount will be rubber isolated. The engine's steel exhaust flange & header has also been completed. No type of "O" ring or gasket is necessary for positive sealing.

    The tuned pipes flat section is not parallel to the top of the radio box, therefore a 7* angle is machined in the cradle as a first step. I rough cut the cradle & located it with the round plug on the rotary table. Custom made toe clamps securely holds the cradle for final machining. The adjustable clamp is held in place on both inside ID's of the cradle with 3/32" OD pins which are located in pre-machined holes. These holes are driled after the cradle's 7* angle is machined & they are also drilled at a 7*angle. The 3/32" OD pins are silver soldered to the adjustable clamp pieces a small distance from their ends. Once they are inserted, they can only be removed by being driven out with a 3/32" OD pin. The final rubber isolation pieces will be glued in place with high temperature silicone rubber cement. The cradle will also have lightening holes machined in it's base.
