  • dual exhaust how to ????

    I have a 1960 Lark with a 259 and want to put dual exhaust on it. I have A 2 1/4" and Flowmaster on the right. The muffler shop said that I would need a rear dump exhaust manifold so that the steering would be cleared and also to avoid extreme heat on the starter. Has any one installed the left side ??? How ???.....thanks Brad

    Duel exhaust was optional. They used the std. manifolds. Any muffler shop, should be able to do it. The system is available thru many Studebaker venders.

      A good but probably not inexpensive option would be to just get the headpipes from Silvertone (Don Simmons) he can make them with larger size tube if that's what you want, but with the factory bends. They're stainless, too. Then you will be able to R&R the starter without dropping the exhaust, which is handy.

        Brad,
        Get all the pipes from Simmons, put them in yourself. No big deal they fit like the factory ones. An afternoon project and your done.

          I installed 2 1/4 duel pipes on my 60 4dr, no problem with starter. Be sure ex. manifold studs are in good shape. I used the oem bracket near the frame riser that's just in front of differential. There happened to be a 64 Cruiser fram that had duels and took the left bracket from it. The frame on your 60 already ahs threaded bungs for it. made the job go easier. I'd find someone who's really interested in doing the job. Anyone that has parts cars will have one. Hope this helps.

            When I put Flowmaster dual exhaust on my Lark, I found a local muffler shop that had the old catalogs that gave the measurements and where to bend the exhaust and tail pipes for my Lark. After I gave them a deposit they bent the pipes according to the measurements given in the catalog they had them ready and waiting for me the next day. They fit quite nicely, snug fit but no interference with the steering. Love the sound too

              I bought a tail pipe for my '60 from SASCO,very reasonable price.I think the complete system is all available from them.[it cost about $30 for the pipe,and $8 for shipping,took 2 days to get here]

                Brad, whatever you do - hats off to you for knowing it's DUAL exhausts ..... as in TWO of them. Duel exhausts would be a pain what with the exhausts always dueling with on another.

                  The drivers side pipe goes forward, and than back next to the starter.
                  There is no special manifold required.

                    Brad,
                    Tom's description of the head pipes is correct, and is even so in the exploded pictures from the parts manual. Don't be confused with the rest of the picture not resembeling your system...this illustration is for the Avanti

                      Interesting that the 'special order' system has a cross-over pipe, and the other does not...

                      One more example of being 'Ahead of their Time' perhaps?

                        Yes sorry, the diagram is of the Avanti, I couldnt find anything else
                        online to link to. A Lark is similar ..... same head pipe, the rest
                        is different. You get the idea though.

                          Dave,
                          They actually refered to that as a "balance" or "equalizer" pipe. Add that to the "regular" mufflers AND resinators, really strangled[xx(] the Avanti and made it sound like a Hoover Vacuum Cleaner...woooooooosh

                            Add that damned "equalizer" and it's REALLY a pain to get the exhaust on and off unless you add an unboltable flange to said equalizer pipe. Once that system is welded up (or even gets nicely oxidized together) it's hell to get that rigid pipe structure on or off the manifolds if you need to.[xx(][8]
                            Also makes things more difficult when extracting or installing an engine. I'd rather not elaborate how I know these gems of insight.[}]

                              That's the word I was looking for, but couldn't seem to think of~ I knew my word was wrong, just had a 'brain fart' at that momment is all-
