Exhaust Pipe

Post by TBrad » Tue Jan 15, 2019 11:49 am

How far should the exhaust pipe extend? The tip in line with the end of the frame rail, or further?

Mine ends about 5" back from the end of the frame rail. It was a dusty new old stock system when I installed it during the restoration many years ago.

I finished reinstalling the muffler on #777 today. I managed to find the proper nuts for the new stainless steel exhaust system at ACE Hardware, of all places. My one conundrum was how to keep the pipe to muffler gasket in-place while I tightened it down, and then I had a brain wave. Why not spray some adhesive on it to hold the gasket in situ while I tighten everything down? Works like a charm.
