  • Exhaust Support

    I just had the new exhaust put in, fit is great. One question, is there a method of relieving the strain on the cast iron piece that the heat riser attaches to? That cast iron piece seems to carry a lot of weight, and I was wondering how to suppost the pipe from the manifold to the muffler. The exploded view diagram does not show any hangers under the toe board.

    All of the cast pieces I have, have cracked, or have started to crack in the same place. I lucked out ?????? as there is a place nearby that can weld cast metal.

    Thanks in advance

    Would that "cast iron piece" be the Exhaust Manifold? Are we talking about a Packard 352 here?

      Yes, It is the small cast iron piece on the 352. The manifolds are great, it is the dumb little cast iron one that rides under the heat riser, on the left side. I have one welded one, and one that cracked in the same place

        It's not the manifold, it's a cast iron adapter elbow.

          You got it. The mechanic wants to know if there is a support or means of support for the pipe coming out of the adapter. It bears the entire wieght including the muffler. If there was a method of supporting the front pipe, he says the adapter would have less chance of cracking again.

            The '55-'58 Chassis Parts Catalog on Pg.132 Plate 04-6 ('56J) shows supports at the rear of muffler and end of tailpipe only, I don't see any supports at the bellhousing like a Stude. V-8!
