Is there anything you all could recommend for the stinger?? Once and awhile I will tap the side wall when coming out of our long sweeper and the stinger will get pushed in. Up till now I have just been bending it out with a screwdriver in the hole and pulling, I would like to know if there is a way to reinforce the stinger so this doesn't happen as much.

Thanks
Sean

Well I am using the Novarossi 9630 pipe which does not have this option but I was thinking to use JB weld to do what you are speaking of.

Thanks

I know what you're talking about, but if you think about it, it will make it worse. The support will push the aluminum behind the stinger even further in. The only way to fix the stinger is to do it while the pipe is still hot, just bent the stinger back to the angle that it was before you bent it, sometimes it looks just right.

Or, you can stop hitting stuff, I know I should

don't use jb weld. the heat from the pipe will soften it up. I used it on my stinger, nice and hard at first but after the pipe got hot stinger came right off.
