I changed out my pipes from the vance and hinds back to stock so I could hear the stereo and when I went to remove the exhaust acorn nuts on the front cylinder both of the studs came out of the head , I thank my lucky stars that they didn't break , but they got a good slobber of silver anti seize before going back in ......and the stereo is pretty loud , I like to share !!!!! :dance:
still have an ear to ear grin on my 03 1800 C ,......... air tools , hummmmmm grinder with a cut wheel....no more tank seam

Apparently your pipes can get you a ticket but loud stereo is O.K. :brick: :brick:

When working on exhaust studs I use milk of magnesia. Not for me but on the bolt. Paint some on let it dry add a little more and assemble. The magnesium stays in the threads like the old lead paste did making removal less stressful.
Keep the chrome side up and right hand twisted.

Still got a can of lead paste in the garage. Used it on generator parts for over 30 years.
Now Illegal to use at work. Use it on studs all the time. :finger:

Ya Ya, lead poisoning-- worked on that kid in Fergusen, 9mm at a time :lol:
