hey folks,

i thought i was gathering the last parts i needed to put my exhaust back to stock. currently i am running a mishmash of repro and later year parts.

my problem is when i started to gather the parts i noticed that the Y pipe and the S pipe to not match. i looked a couple of bone stock '55's at davenport and saw that the Y pipe fits into the S pipe. my problem is that the nos S pipe i have is set up to have the Y pipe slide over it NOT into it.

my research in palmers book makes no mention of different styles.

one source indicated this pipe may be a early 65 only part.

any one ever seen one like this?

the part number reads 65465 . 36 amf era tag

joe,

it looks normal, but it is sized to have the Y pipe on the end slide over it?!?

i certainly would consider trading if someone had the correct one in similar condition.

would still like to know what it is supposed to fit, big twin flattie?

John!

I lean toward the '65 theory also, as the conjoined S-Y pipes for '65 cannot be easily serviced with a sidehack attached. Yours would seem to be the un-welded front half...
and very desireable to us '65 hackpackers!

Although it calls for a 'female' Y-pipe to go with it.....

yeah that is the rub. on the table at davenport where i purchased my Y pipe there were 2 Y pipes with female ends! i should have bought one of each.

The part no: 65465-36 is the number for the standard 36 to 57 Big Twin squish pipe. Its called a "front exhaust pipe rear end" in my 49-57 Parts Listing. Must it maybe be considerd as "wrong part for number"??.......Joe
