Aluminum bushing thingie?
Posted August 07, 2002 - 04:52 AM
Where do you get a replacement aluminum bushing that connects the header and silencer? I tried FMF and they werent any help.
I cant remember if the one thats on there now came stock or with the silencer. Its completely worn out and exhaust is escaping though.
Any ideas? Something at the hardware store works mabye?

I cut a strip of sheet metal about 1-1/4" wide and just long enough to wrap once around the header without overlapping. Then I formed it around the header to make it cylindrical. I make sure that when I put them together, the seams in the homemade bushing and the muffler flange do not overlap. It fits just inside the header/muffler joint and forms a (nearly) perfect seal.

Yea, that's what I was talking about. Is the clearance between the header and muffler much smaller than the stock setup? If so, I didn't realize that...
