Aceca Exhaust Mounts
« on: August 28, 2006, 08:14:43 »
Hello there:
   I am a new member and owner of a '59 Aceca with AC engine.  I am replacing some corroded flex pipe which runs from the headers to the muffler and would appreciate any insight on the following related question:
   In undertaking the project, I've noted some creative methods of attaching the front of the muffler and the mid point of the rear tailpipes.  I believe all exhaust components are original.  There are two (currently unused) threaded studs coming off the front of the muffler and two adjacent (currently unused) small U-shaped hangers on the frame.  The rear tailpipes have, approximately at their midpoint, threaded studs extending up from them as well.
   I'm a bit of a purist and would prefer to attach the exhaust in its original fashion.  If anyone is able to describe what I'm missing or, better yet, email me a photograph of a correct installation, I would really appreciate it.
