I had these but their steel. after sizing them and pressing them in there was no reason to weld cause they are not coming out by themselves. Not saying its the way its just a way.

No problems with it melting that I know of... I ran it the whole season, no issues...

Thought mine came loose again yesterday! I heard a noise that sounded nearly the same as the last time a pipe came loose. Man! Sure was relieved to find my tank badge coming loose instead! Much easier to fix!
Regarding the weld-ins, I'd love to do that! I have an old TIG that I'm sure is capable, but never welded (successfully that-is!) anything cast! Need some knowledge, time, and practice material.
Regarding the fix mentioned in post #11, so far so good about 100 miles later. Not much time to ride lately....

Got any junk intakes or aluminum heads? Break a chunk out and weld it back in. I would figure with an old JUNK bike head you could get lots of practice by welding the fins you broke off back on. I have several large aluminum bits, and as I can get the time to get an acetylene outfit I plan to learn that way. Better to burn holes in junk than something I plan to use....

Here's my solution to the spigots spinning in the head.Made a set of flanges & welded them on the spigots & pipes.Little finish work on them yet.

Have the same problem on my 72 OIF (push in exhaust); bought the push in iron spigots and one's coming loose, an old timer told me guys used to cut a coke can and wrap the aluminum around the spigot, then tap it in, should hold, although I haven't had the time to try it yet.

If I had more money I would just weld some alum. spigots on there and be done for good.

^^^I used that method to get me thru last summer on one of the spigots....it eventually loosened up as well....I have a small collection of heads with exhaust spigots in way better condition, but chose to run this one for performance reasons...had intentions of machining aluminum spigots and cnc'ing head for proper fit should they fail.....finally did it... looks good and doesn't look like a rig job..
