Motorcycle strap got me SO CLOSE!!!
I can pull the exhaust pipe up where I need it... But the angle is over bent from impact to exhaust from the bottom, that the turbo flange and exhaust won't mate up enough for the band clamp
So, now I'm thinking about leaving the strap on the exhaust and getting a automotive screw jack and set it on lower horizontal portion of exhaust and seeing if I can spread that bend open...
Knuckle buster? You betcha!
Do-able? Dunno, but the price is right!
Tomorrow, I'm going to crawl under bus, and see if I can wedge a crossbar between the frame rails to hold the lower horizontal pipe down while I tighten the green strap from the top....
Also I could run something across the bottom of the frame rail and strap the lower pipe to it, then spread the bend open
It only needs to open an inch or two
