New Muffler fitting
 
Hey, I just got a new muffler yesterday for my 05 GMC Canyon after straight piping it about 2 months ago but in order to get the new muffler to fit in I need to have a smaller piece of pipe in between where the old muffler was cut out.

I was planning on just taking the easy way out and getting a small piece of pipe to use as a sleeve to go over the 2 pipes and clamp it down but cannot find anything big enough anywhere locally.

I have a welder in the Barn that I bought on ebay a few weeks ago and have thought about welding the piece of pipe to the muffler then just lift it up under the truck and clamp it down on the 2 ends but im not 100% sure about the grounding clamp on the welder. If I was to just put the muffler and pipe on a wooden work bench I have would it be safe to just put the ground clamp on the other end of the mufffler or would I have to do something else with it?

Sorry for the long post and thanks for any help understanding.

Ayuh,... So long as the ground clamp is attached to the same steel as yer weldin',...

Ya, it'll work just Fine...
