    Long shot...Anyone have a chunk of 5" steel round pipe

    Yeah, thought I'd try. I need about 6" of 5" round STEEL maybe 1/8, I have to make a spacer for a carb. Where the heck can I find something like this?

    Could you use hard duct ? Spiral pipe maybe?

    if you are talking about standard five inch steel seamless pipe, that's easy. if you mean five inch OD, well thats not so easy, but it could easily be rolled by a real fab shop.

    Some older GM cars, with Quadrajet carbs had the spacer you're looking for.

    Find a shop that supply's exhaust parts to medium/heavy duty trucks, lots of them use pipe in the 5" range, might be able to cut and fit a 45 bend to get your offset.

    I have a machine shop here that made me a collar for my wood stove out of some flat stock. I couldn't tell it was flat stock when I got it.
    Karst means cave. So, I search for caves.

    Get a piece of strap, roll it, weld it, and smooth it out with a grinder/sander. I built an intake tube for my truck out of some thicker sheet metal using this method.
