I have a 26 Roadster and bought a new pipe, nut and muffler. Does the muffler bolt to the frame or is there a bracket that bolts to the frame and the muffler bolts to the bracket? I cannot seem to get the pipe to not be hitting something and bolt the muffler to the frame and the pipe seems to be too long by about 2 inches unless there should be a bracket of some sort.

Thanks
Gerald

Thanks
I just hate to have to beat and cut a new pipe. But what they heck. Make it my own right :-) Worst case put it on a trailer and take it to the muffler shop.

Gerald: If you have the correct pipe and muffler and have it assembled and in the almost correct position you will see a bolt hole in the right frame rail that the muffler attaches to .Not a big project.

I just assumed the pipe came 2" too long when I installed mine and shortened it to suit.

I think all tailpipes used in conjunction with the replacement mufflers need to be trimmed. They are left long to take care of any discrepancy in the muffler assembly used. This is nothing new and is how they have been made for many years.

Cut the pipe off 1.75 inch and she fit like a dream.

Plenty of clearance it seems.

You guys have it easy. Try getting the pipe past the three pedals on the hogshead and then low under the starter foot switch, and see how many more bends you have to make, and tweak, before the pipe heads out the back in the right direction.

We had real problems with them until our club had me deliver a rolling chassis to a specialist exhaust shop. They developed a bending pattern which is almost spot on, using the chassis as a fitting mule. We went from one in ten fitting without tweaking to one in ten needing tweaking.

Allan from down under.

I would make a comment about you driving on the wrong side of the road but I won't. The one place I have always wanted to visit is Australia. On the bucket list hope to make it someday.
