1971 1973 mustang muffler top hat mounts
#1
All,

The standard muffler had top hats to mount the mufflers. What have you done to work around this? Did you make your own? What are the dimensions?

Someone makes an adapter clamp for that situation. I can’t find a pic, or the manufacturer, however it was in one of the single to dual exhaust discussions in the past. The bottom portion of the muffler clamp is ‘exaggerated’ and has a flat piece of metal coming up on both sides that you can bolt the stock hanger to.

I bought the muffler mounting points from Scott Fuller Exhaust and welded them to the mufflers. They do not appears on his site, you need to contact him directly to get them. Chuck

Sorry I posted a link to the hanger instead of the bracket your are looking for. Mustangs Unlimited used to sell them. I posted a link to them in this old thread but the link no longer works. https://www.7173mustangs.com/showthread....#pid244723

I took a quick look on their site but I don't see them.

You might try calling them if you strike out on Chuck's source.

Pretty simple to make your own with flat bar from a hardware store, a vice, and 10 minutes. Easy enuogh to modify a muffler clamp into an adapter, too.
