Exhaust mounting question


BugMan

Recommended Posts

Hi, can I just get a quick check on the mounting of the exhaust can on the side of the car.

Now I know my Sport 250 is not the most common model and think i have found all the required bits, but just wanted to ask about the post mounting.  I think i have found the boss on the inside of the chassis, which would need drilling through from the inside, is this correct?

Supplied exhaust can, with 2 massive jubilee clips?

Rubber anti vibration block

Exhaust hanging on the driver side

Hole i think I need to drill through from the inside?

Usually fitted with a bracket and a long sleeve with a bolt into chassis.

Yep, carefully drill small hole centrally from inside, then open it up from the outside.

The rubber mount you need, should be a angled bracket to go with it. Big jubilee clips are part of you're 250 bonus pack ;)

silencer mount goes like this

Just be aware. I noted a few instances of this rubber mount block failing as it separates with age. One neat solution is to grind off the 2 threaded studs and drill through the whole assembly and put a bolt and nut right through in its place. Might take a couple of years use but the carbon cans are expensive bits of kit to have dropping off.

You might need the jubilee clips for your trouser legs, first time you put your right foot down hard :nope:

Tension is no problem, for a mount designed to be used like that, and neither is shear, again provided the mount is designed to cope.

The majority does seem to last reasonably well with the big square type, but I freely admit I carry a spare, Ive had one fail in fourteen ish years.

I suspect the biggest issue is the angle it’s mounted at, it’s in both tension, probably ok, and shear, less ok. In addition, if the exhaust and brackets don’t fall properly in line, and they don’t always, it ends up with a twist on it too. (Look at some, and the steel mounting faces aren’t parallel. I suspect it’s these that tend to fail)

None the less, if you want to be belt and braces about it, especially if you plan to use the car in harsh environments, like trackdays, the drill and bolt through approach is a good compromise.

Yeh I'll post a pic won't be until tomorrow though. Its basically just two jubilee clips wrapped around the rubber holding it together as it's starting to split. I did think about making a nylon one with a hole right through but haven't had the time

@BugMan my jubilee clips appear to have fallen off lol so I wouldn't use that method my mount has survived though for a good few years ill just wrap some wire around it now to stop it falling apart and then make a nylon one when I get time
