Thanks! I have a few of these clamps that came with my drivetrain when I bought it. They look to be a pretty good option, I just had never used them before. I'll give those a shot once I get my fuel leaks sorted out. It's funny to me how so many people think, "Oh it runs now! Bet you're glad to be finished!" LOL I am a LOOONG way from finished, but at least I can move around the yard and even drive it to work now.On the exhaust, whether you weld it all up or use clamps is your call. There are clamps that don't leak. A bit more expensive than the plain ones you get at the muffler shop but they work. 3" ones run in the $9 and up range depending on size and material. These are what you often find on big trucks. They come in versions that join equal size pipes and unequal sizes.
