In Reply to: Thermal reactor crack welding posted by Peter S on April 24, 2000 at 00:01:20:

: '02 nuts,
: You may recall I'm thinking of buying an 02 with a cracked thermal reactor. I hear replacements are expensive even for a used one. Then I heard somebody had welded one back to health. I saw a crack/break on the tube beside the reactor.
: Is This the usual spot for breaks, or in the unit itself?
: Is it stainless steel or what?
: Can it be welding with my MIG welder if I remove it?
: Is it smog legal if I do?
:
: Actually I'd prefer to dump it for headers but Cal. smog tests prevent this till 2006!

: Thanks.

I have a new thermal reactor on my '75' 02 that I am getting ready to switch over to a tii manifold. Find out what it is worth new and make me an offer. I should be pulling the part in the next week. Call if you want to talk about it, (206) 634-3188. Joe
