Exhaust Manifold outlet port

Postby The Riot » Mon Oct 14, 2013 5:18 pm

Does anyone know if there are different sizes of the exhaust port, that is the hole that the exhaust pipe elbow screws in to? I bought a new manifold and it looks like the port is larger than my old one.

thanks,

the late model cubs used a larger fitting than the early ones, sounds like that is what you bought,to use it you will have to get a pipe bushing to make it fit the early pipe

Thanks, Tim. So using a reducer to go to the smaller pipe won't hurt the engine due to the restricted exhaust?

I also have seen aftermarket exhaust manifolds with the larger outlet port. They actually came with the screw in bushing to adapt your original size exhaust pipe.

In addition, the original is 1 inch pip thread, and the larger is 1 1/4 inch pipe thread. If you elect to use the 1 1/4 without reducing, they frequently have a clearance problem, also IH mufflers do not fit, but there is an AC muffler that will, though it looks different. Unless you have done all the other things to try increasing your horse power the reducer bushing is the way to go.
If you are not part of the solution,
you are part of the problem!!!
