missing exhaust hardware?

There seem to be differences between the way the muffler attaches to the exhaust pipe on the 2 sides of my 1966 140.

On the RR side, there appears to be a support hanger that is completely detached from the exhaust pipe and no U-bolt to crimp the muffler flange on the pipe:




On the LR side, there is a clamping U-bolt, but no hanger bracket from the rest of the car:





Are the 2 sides supposed to be different? Am I missing something from either or both sides?

p.s. sorry about the rotation of the pictures. TinyPic has its own ideas about the best orientation.

LR is missing a clamps since the muffler isn't welded...

And yes you are missing the L-side 140 hanger....as duals were not available on 110's or less....all years!

The hanger in your first pic (RR?) is an extra added piece by a PO or muffler shop.

There is a missing exhaust pipe clamp on the "U" pipe / muffler.

Clark's catalog shows a list of the correct pieces:

Usually the hanger is on the rear of the head not the front like in the picture. Of course two hangers on each side would be a suitable extra provision.
I like the universal type hanger pictured okay. It's difficult to use original type hangers sometimes unless muffler is the same size and oriented to fit. Once they've been in place for a while, it's often impossible to rotate them, especially if the pipes have been dimpled.
The left side is extra tricky because of the oil cooler and smaller holes in the head.

Anyone have pictures of what the original muffler hanger configuration should look like on a 140hp?

Is there only 1 hanger per muffler?

One hanger at the rear of the muffler.
The front was supported by the pipe.
Middle of this Clark's catalog page has a simple line drawing showing the arrangement.
