Hi everyone

The coolant pipe leading from the water pump on my 1993 Trophy 4 needs replacing. It sprang a small leak on its bend and whilst I have had it welded on the spot of the leak I would prefer to replace it as its clearly got weak spots. Used ones available of course but they will probably be in the same condition. Does anyone know of a company who can bend metal pipes and flare them out.
Can you advise.

Thanks for posting.. ... it's the metal water pump outlet pipe. Photo attached. The photo is from an eBay listing but as it's a used pipe like mine (prettied up with some plating) with no warranty as to the extent of the corrosion I wasn't interested.

I know its second hand but it would be better than nothing for now , and it would mean you had your old one to take round to find someone to make you one up .

What diameter is the pipe ? could you get one made up in copper plumbing pipe ? just a thought .

It's quite a job to remove it..... Labour charges are a lot. The detailed photos I have are ok to send out for the purpose of (a) finding someone willing n able to make one (b) get a price. As these metal pipes clearly have a weak point on the bend (where I had mine welded) and are common to both Trophys n Daytona's I thought other people out there might have experienced the same problem.

I dont think its that common ... ive had 1200 trophy 25k , trident 900 58k and a daytona 900 super 111 34k and none of them had a problem with that water pipe .
I think you've just been unlucky and im sure there are more out there , but yours is the first ive seen !

Hmmmm...... it may be more of a time issue rather than a mileage one. 30 years is a long time to expect a metal pipe full of water that changes it's temperature range not to rust thru, particularly at it's weakest point I.e. the place it's been bent.

I think if it was me i would be tempted to cut it at the bend and re join it with a rubber hose and two clamps , it bolts at both ends so shouldn't be able to move much .
