Getting ready to change the muffler just wondering if anyone has any suggestions on the best way to get it loose?

Thanks

Use plenty of PB blaster and be hard headed!
Also be very careful,pulling the muffler out the top is dangerous.
I use a forklift,but most guys don't have one of those things at home.
If you have old man skin get plenty of bandaids!

Understand have been doing the PB blaster and definitely got plenty of band aids. We have a winch so should be okay there.

Thanks

Reaching up above the rad to get those U bolts out is tough.
Gear wrenches work well in that area.

If the bottom want come loose, I would just use a saw zall and cut it off. Rebuild from cut pipe to flex pipe. Or, air hammer and loosen pipe. Or a long pipe with sledgehammer with someone holding (pulling up from the top).

Getting around to get this done. If I can’t get it out without needing the flex and elbow does anyone know the specs for the elbow and where to get one quickly if Stephen doesn’t have one?
Thanks

I build the elbows,its maybe a 30 degree elbow and you have to cut it off,the old pipe has the turbo flange you need,so cut it off and weld it on the new pipe.
The 6'' stainless flex is hard to find,and if you don't get stainless you will be replacing it in a year.

Stainless flex is available in the commercial marine industry. Rose marine in Gloucester. ma. has it. I believe it is also available from Applegate Industrial Materials.
Both sleeve over type and bolt together flanges as well as elbows are available.

Ahh,good idea,i always look in the trucking industry,and trucks don't use 6'' much.
