Repair stinger on carbon fiber muffler
The stinger on my carbon fiber muffler is hanging on by a small amount; it has side to side movement along with up and down movement. I have tried to repair it but without success.
I have used epoxy with carbon fiber strips attached to the stinger. But the heat of the exhaust coming from the YS engine softens the epoxy. I have also tried laminating resin, same result.
I have also tried JB weld with the same results.
My latest attempt was to use Form-a-gasket, which stated it could sustain 600 degrees F, but the adhesive liquified. It was also suppose to be resistant to solvents. I had used this in the past on auto engine repairs and it did work.
I am in need of some help along the lines of suggetions for a repair other than buying a new muffler.
Thanks in advance.
