Those measurements are a close match to a standard 4" steel weld elbow. You should be able to find one at any large plumbing supply store.

Re: Water pump flange rework

Are you boring the hole before reaming? Do you dial in the face of the flange before boring and reaming? Is the hole you're trying to ream run true? Anyof these might cause your problem.

Re: Need some help from the G.J. brain trust

Re: Need some help from the G.J. brain trust

Re: Atlas 618 Lathe - Deal or No Deal?
