I see what looks like a crack in the place where the oxygen sensor goes on my "new to me" 88 Graduate (see picture). As well as a clamp that I assume has been added. I cannot feel any exhaust coming from this area, but it looks like it needs attention. Is that "cap" stock? I am a little hesitant to open it up and look inside just yet. If this "cap" is stock, I wonder if the crack, and where it joins the exhaust, can be welded back. On the other hand, if its just a protective cap, and the sensor is screwed in nice and tight, then I assume that there is no rush. Can someone comment?

The "cap" just protects the oxygen sensor and is 100 percent original equipment, including the split. Consider that to replace the sensor the clamp has to be loosened and the cap or shield removed to put a wrench on the hex of the sensor.

Well, that settles that.

Thank you.
