WTB: 65 turbo muffler mount or need a pic!!
Posted by: DOUG WARD ()

Hi guys, My 65 180 Corsa is missing the mount / bracket that bolts to the R/H head and to the strap asse,mbly around the muffler. I can't seem to ID the correct shape in the Clarks catalog + theirs is pretty pricie @ about $ 60.00 bucks. California Corvairs doesn't have a used one & hasn't seen one in a while . Does any one have a good used one that I can buy ? Or can any one post a picture of the correct one so I could possibly make one myself ? Doug Ward

There two different type exhaust systems on the 65, one of them, like mine, uses the EM hanger and muffler, most of them use the larger more round muffler with a longer hanger.

If your muffler has a bracket on the aft end for 2 bolts to attach, you have design 2. Photos show design 2 muffler and bracket.

I have this bracket and it can be had for $70 plus shipping. Supposedly it is NOS but has a strip of surface rust on the horizontal bend. Photos of my bracket available, if you PM me your email address.

Hi Al, I do not have the muffler shown in the pictures that you posted. I am pretty sure my car is a very early 65, as it has the original sticker on the air cleaner that says " Spyder" and 180 hp. There weren't very many that went out with these odd ball stickers. You can find out that it is a legitimate sticker with some research. Anyway, I see now that I have the early style muffler & hangar so I won't be able to use the one you have. Thanks for your reply though. Doug Ward

I have some of the hangers in the discussion linked below. If one will work, let me know.

I installed a EM muffler in a 65 recently, luckily the hanger there worked okay. It's quite a challenge to get that pipe exiting as it should. The way I thought it should align at first was like 6" off.

I hope you can find one but sometimes 60 bucks isn't a lot for the time involved coming up with something else.

I hate to notch the top hole to install but it can be difficult to do it the right way. Making the notch sort of a hook helps retain it's integrity somewhat.

Hi Al, I think you are saying that you DO have some early 62 thru early 65 turbo hangars. If so, I am interested in buying one from you. Do you have a price handy ? Let me know. Doug Ward
