What you need

The Exhaust flange is in a very vulnerable place and you will find that it is easily damaged. If you don't fix the broken flange, you may find that besides the break you have other issues, including limiting the dynamics of the exhaust gases and even damaging the floor on which your vehicle moves. Instead of sticking to the broken exhaust flange, be prepared to fix it when you have a few hours of free time. This job can be completed in a day and won't be too difficult to be managed by someone with a basic knowledge of car maintenance.

Step 1 - clean the flange

In order to properly repair the flange, you must first clean it thoroughly. This is necessary to remove all rust, burned parts, and other exhaust products that may be on the end of the flange. It also ensures that there is no fuel or oil on the part that you are about to fix. Manipulate the broken part to make sure it fits back into place, then hold the broken parts together with a vise or two if necessary. If you are missing part of the flange, or if a very large piece has broken off, consider replacing the exhaust completely. A small break or crack can be fixed with the broken parts.

Step 2 - warm up the parts

Once the broken pieces are held together by the vise, you should use your acetylene torch to heat them up. You should only use an acetylene heat source for this and not just heat the broken parts with an old flame. Remember that the exhaust processes a lot of toxic fumes. So be careful what heat source you use to melt the iron easily. Once the pieces of metal turn red and start bending, you should use your soldering sticks to move the metal around on the surface. Take your rod from one melted part to the other and run the melted flange parts through between the two ends. Once you've melted one side and pulled the bars together, move to the other side of the cart and repeat the process.

Step 3 - Let it cool down

After successfully fusing the broken pieces into one, you should hold the flange in place until the metal has completely cooled. You need to slowly adjust the exhaust to cool down and bring the burner to and from the metal in increasing circles so that the burner is eventually completely removed from the pipe. When the metal has cooled, use the steel file to remove any protruding lumps and remove the vise. The exhaust should now be completely fixed.
