110 dual exhaust.
Posted by: bobg1951chevy ()

For my 110 '69, I read I will need a 140 hp left exhaust bracket, which mounts on the engine.

What actually ties the muffler to the 140 exhaust bracket ?

Thanks, Bob.

If you're talking about the same thing I'm thinking of, there is a full surround metal strap that hangs the muffler from the brackets.
Pretty sure they're on both sides, but I've been single muffler turbo for awhile and have not had a muffler off in a long time.

But I'm thinking it's a strap you're looking for.
That's what's holding the other side on your stock setup, right?

"Cococo" Paul is correct. Both mufflers, left and right, are hung using full-surround metal straps.

Additional Info: (Maybe more than you wanted to know!) The straps are the same, but the left and right side hangars are not interchangeable. Also, the heat shields - the sheet metal baffles that hang between the mufflers and valve covers - are different. Lots of people run without the heat shields, but from what I've read, they actually do work. I have the factory heat shield on my own big-single exhaust system.

If you're thinking of designing your own hangars, don't hang the mufflers on the body of the car. The hangars should attach to the engine.

In short, it's like Allan said. The passenger side heat shield fastens to the ends of the head. The drivers side fastens to the muffler.

I put duals on my old red 66 110...took it to the muffler shop and said put duals on it...an hour later paid the man and drove out...he used what was there and it turned out great.

Might want to go by the shop first and tell them what you want...that pipe is pretty small...they may want to special order that size with their next shipment.

Buy the Clarks U-bends and bring them with you to the Muffler shop. Buy the rest and the labor from them.

The left and right muffler/heat shield arrangements are totally different from one another. The right side has the heat shield bolted to the muffler hanger in the rear and bolted to the head in the front. The left side bolts to the hanger in the rear, BUT is strapped to the muffler in the front. It's why so many of them got tossed when the car needed new exhaust. Hence just TRY to find a left side shield in the swap meets.

Hey Bob...

I installed Dynomax 17731 mufflers on my old red 66 and have them on my 66 140 turquoise . They really sound great. Did I ever crank mine up in Hendersonvlle at the show for you...can't remember.

Summit has them for 48.97 each.

Jimmy,

I saw a turq. Corvair at a Hendersonville show, but did not hear it run.

I don't think I saw you either, but did see the Corvair.

Sweet 1969 that you had at the Maggie Valley show. Don’t tell me those OEM mufflers have given up after 48 years. You really need to write GM a letter. LOL

I am going to do that about my Pitman arm bushing that just failed afer 51 years.

Beautiful car you have there.

Hi Mike,

I'm torn between keeping the car exactly as you saw it, in its factory / stock fashion ..... or adding buckets, carpeting, etc.

So, my compromise is to only add duals and take in the shows in 2018, just as you saw it.

Thanks for the kind words about the Corvair.

Bob.

For what my opinion is worth as long as the changes are reversible then do what you want and enjoy it. YMMV.

Thanks,
