Default 4.5" polished turndowns

Still can locate anywhere to get 4.5"od turn downs. Gibson, GGB, or cant find custom placed for mandrels. Need them long enough to clear merc 6 drives. Anybody have a source for these. Had to resort to PVC just to get boat to pass noise law, but cant run it they will break off. Help.Jim LOTO

Go to a truck stop and get some of the rubber elbows they use for air intakes. They won't break and they can't look any worse than PVC.

Call Fred/TooOld...

He could find a hard working Government Employee if you give him time.

He finds anything.

Call a tube bending shop. You can use schedule 10 4" stainless pipe, and then have it polished. There are shops in St. Louis and KC, but we use ....

Tulsa Tube Bending.
(918) 446-4461

They will be much cheaper than anyone related to the marine industry

4" pipe is 4.5" o.d.

schedule 5 is .083" wall
schedule 10 is .120" wall
standard is .237" wall
