it does give me an idea though....
I can take a new pipe, cut it so I can install it, and then do my rubber hose patch job on a new pipe with clean metal ends even if I could not solder a joint.
the reason I don't want to just drive it as is, is because I do have the tell tale signs of impending HG failure. But, with a rubber hose patch job done on old rusty metal, I question the integrity of the entire thing.
that pipe sure is a b!tch! haha
I actually wondered if I could just run rubber coolant hose for the entire lenght of it, but still I'd be faced with a connector patch job as it enters the water pump...
