Should the brass nut always be replaced when taking the exhaust system off of a T? Just need a few opinions because I was told buy a model T guy at a swap meet he always puts a new one when he changes exhaust or exhaust manifold. I have a new one but the one on my car doesn't have 2000 miles on it. Thanks Tim
That model T guy must have money to burn! re-use the old one until it's just plum wore out, which I haven't been able to do as yet on any T.
Agree with Frank. If the old nut works, use it and spend the ten bucks on something you need.
Tim, was he selling new exhaust pipe nuts? Dave
Some of the people on this forum amaze me with some of the dumb things they do!
YA, You also need to buy new nuts whenever you remove a bolt. ha ha.
Don't they say if it's not broken don't try and fix it
Better yet, buy the manifold and the nut to insure even thread wear patterns.
Find the guy who told you that he replaces his exhaust nuts every time and tell him you'll take all those used exhaust nuts off his hands to help him reduce his trash bill.
