I replaced the cross over pipe on my R75/5 with a $10 plumbing extension pipe found in the under-sink aisle.
They are 12 inches long, brass inside, chrome outside, 1 1/4 inches in diameter..
I ground the threaded section off of both ends of the extension, never-seized the header and slid them on.
Slide it on further than the original, right up to the welds.
No clamps needed.
Much quieter and prettier than the 7 hose clamps and rusty tin the PO had wrapped around the old crossover.
