I may be forced to get a new exhaust pipe, so my question is, having missed out on one of Larry Smiths reproductions, which pipe should I be looking for?

I see there is standard aluminized and stainless. I thought I read that one of these fit worse that the other.

I bought mine from Snyder's in Ohio. Exhaust pipes are not created equal, and yes, they sometimes do require some bending and patience to install.

I bought the stainless pipe and it fits just fine.

I bought whatever one Bob sells and with the exception of having to trim about 2" off the back end (better too long than too short) it popped right into place.

I have one of the regular type replacements. Except for the pinch at the bend and having to trim to fit, never had any issues many want to rant about.

The bend in the pipe where the pipe is made for ideal conditions. If the frame sags around the area of the rear motor mounts (crankcase ears) the pipe will need to bent to fit or the frame needs to be straightened. Ideally the frame should be straightened, but it is a lot of work and usually done with a body off restoration, so if everything works except the fit of the pipe, bend the pipe to fit.

Chad, whatever you choose to use, make sure the flange sits neatly against the manifold before running up the packnut. Do not be tempted to use the packnut to draw things into line. This will stress the manifold and greatly increase the chance of it becoming warped.

Hope this helps,
Allan from down under.

Does anyone use any kind of muffler cement? I have a small leak I just can't seal. I think a small bead around the flange might help.

It always helps to identify the year of your Ford. They changed the design of the exhaust pipe many times during production.

One of the better fitting stainless steel pipes that a lot of members swear by, was made and sold by the late Vern Campbell, They were not the late design pipes made by Larry. P.M. me if you want to know more.

Larry, you are right. I entirely pulled a rookie move and forgot to put the year. It is for a '25.
