Muffler Clamps

#1

Post by sprucecreek » Tue Feb 03, 2009 4:15 am

I have dual exhaust on my 56 FLH and, not surprisingly, it appears to be the post-58 variety. The problem is that the post-58 clamps that go on the body of the muffler use a single bolt and appear to be shorter than what I need to make sure the muffler clears the toolbox. This probably wasn't an issue for the 58s, since they had the tool box mounted differently. I see that the stock 2 into 1 exhaust uses a clamp that has two bolts in it, so the muffler hangs lower, which would likely solve my problem. The OEM part number is 65293-50, but I haven't been able to find them anywhere...suggestions on where I should look would be welcomed! Thanks.
