J.B. weld is only good up to 500 degrees F. It will just turn into liquid if it gets too hot. Try muffler putty, its good for up to 2000 degrees F.

    Either crimp the air tube or find a bolt the size of the line and screw it in to the air tube. To make sure there are no leaks I would J.B. weld the screw in. Most catalytic converters I have seen come with a plug installed that you can tack out if you need the air tube.

How do i get m y chevrolet s10 to be pepp why my 1984 chevy s10 has limited speed?


Many things do this. First you have a 84, Do a compression test. low, then give up. No matter what you sink into it, it won't get better unless you rebuild the engine. Next replace the catalytic converter. After that tune it up, from the fuel filter to the top of the engine.

Directions on installing a catalytic converter


For optimum performance, the converter must be installed so exhaust flows through it in the proper direction. When laying beneath the vehicle with your feet towards the rear, the converter should be installed so the numbers stamped into it are readable.
s Random Technology Super Flow catalytic converters are designed to fit a variety of vehicles. Special adapters may be required or special air tube adapters may be required.
s If a converter with air tubes is installed on a vehicle not equipped with an air management system, both air tube fittings must be plugged.
s If a converter is installed on a vehicle with an air management system, one air tube elbow & one plug must be used.

Plug Installation
Determine which air tube fittings (if either) are to be used to make air connection in your application. (Plug the side away from the vehicle's air supply management system.) Plug the fitting(s) not used before installing converter.
plug%20inst%20ill.jpeg 1. As in Figure 1, place converter on a secure surface with air tube fittings up, being careful not to crush the converter body or heat shield.
2. Place plug(s) into airtube fitting(s). See Figure 2 for direction of plug.
3. With a hammer tap plug(s) into airtube fitting (s) until seated. The top of the plug(s) will be flush with the end(s) of the tube. See
Figure 3.
4. Crimp the end of the tube over the plug with pliers. Crimp in at least 4 places. See Figure 4.


Airtube Elbow Installation
The airtube elbow is installed on the same side of the converter as the
vehicle's air supply management system. The remaining tube should be plugged (See above). If your vehicle is not equipped with an air management system, both tubes should have been plugged.

After installing catalytic converter on the vehicle:

1. As shown in Figure 1, insert the airtube elbow into the converter's airtube fitting.
2. Position elbow in correct direction to connect air management system and secure either by welding or by using a small clamp.
3. Complete connection to the vehicle's air management system. (An airtube attachment kit may be required.)

Yes, you have to order the same size. You also need a coupler that joins the pipe to the Cat.

Order the catalytic converter for that make and model and you will get the right size, assuming that the installation was done at the factory and has not been modified.

I suggest using a factory cat with a y-pipe behind the cat to your dual exhaust. LMC Truck makes a great bolt on duel exhaust with resonators. Easy to install and great sound.

if you are not all that mechanical take it to a muffler shop they are usually cheap to cut out and swap please make sure that your current exhasut is the still stock or you will need to know the diameter of the pipe they used

you can do it without weldind. If the old one is welded on then you will have to get another pipe to extend the pipe or get a cat long enoungh to fit the space than muffler clapit in place.

I don't believe you need to weld anything, but its a good idea to have a torch maybe, to get off the old one. or a big hammer.
