Apollo 13 would not have made it back without duct tape and bailing wire.

Please keep in mind, this reply has my tongue firmly planted in my cheek.tongue sticking out smiley

I can't see any problem there. It appears that all the necessary components are in place.
I see the exhaust manifold that has no broken ears.
I see an exhaust packing.
I see an exhaust pipe with the flange intact.
I see a couple of pieces of attaching hardware keeping the flange secured to the manifold.
Really, I don't see where a leak might occur but maybe there is a slight chance that extending the pipe length a wee bit and adding a muffler of some sort might make some difference if the customer wants a lower decibel level. confused smiley

The only real concern I see is that someone installed and used a worm gear clamp incorrectly. That is not a radiator hose down there. I mean REALLY.angry smiley
