I've had to take part of the Rimmer Bros Stainless Sports exhaust off the 110 and although the pipework is all stainless it seems some of the clamp pieces that hold it together are only made in mild steel and after 10 years are starting to show their age.
There are two joints that are clamped together with a ring on either side of the joint and three nuts and bolts and the rings have corroded to the point where I will struggle to make a decent job of putting it back on. This is an example of the piece of exhaust I'm on about:
Obviously I can't just replace those rings as they were fitted before the end was welded on so does anyone know if there is some kind of clamp you can put round the exhaust in place of these to hold it all together?
the problem with using mild steel straight to stainless due to the fact the mild steel will corrode first as it has a different corrosion rate ,as the mass of stainless is greater the mild steel will act like a sacraficial anode.
