Title: Muffler size/style ?
Post by: attkrlufy on June 24, 2010, 07:20:11 AM
Can someone help find the specs on the mufflers my 1979 New Yorker uses?  Specifically, Does anyone know the following about my car's muffler:


1) Offset (style)

2) Shell length

3) Overall length



I've got a guy putting in dual exhausts w/ H-pipes.  I asked for help with this ages ago in this thread:  http://www.moparfins.com/forum/forum_posts.asp?TID=1689 (http://forum_posts.asp?TID=1689) and I'm finally getting around to doing it.  (Did I mentioned I'm giddy as a school-boy?)  (http://www.moparfins.com/forum/smileys/smiley27.gif)

I'm taking CBarge's advice and going with DynoMax Super Turbo mufflers and 2 1/4" dual pipes from manifold to tip.  However, the mechanic putting in the pipes can't get Dynomax products.  So I have to order them and get them to him myself.  But I'm in Washington DC for the next week and a half so I can't see the car or take measurements of the muffler size/shape.

P.S. Anyone going to Carlisle?  I'll be there and I'd love to show you guys the work I've done to Wanda this past year.  Because, truthfully, I couldn't have done it without all your help.  :)

Do me a favor
 
Call Raymond at 973-366-1991 and tell him Steve Hobby sent you.  He can tell you.  Call him Cock-a-roacha.  He'll know. . . .  He has all those old books there and glad to help.  I believe he can get you turbo mufflers too.  Ask.  You can pick it up on the way home.  He's in Dover, NJ.  If you do that, I'll meet up with you.  I'm a mile away.  You can drive Polaraco!

Thanks CBarge.  I remember you mentioned the 17747 model before - I just wanted to double-check they fitted R-bodies as well as C-bodies.  (http://www.moparfins.com/forum/smileys/smiley4.gif)

Aw, man!  I wish I could.  I'm on this trip to DC with my wife.  I really don't think she'd be too pleased if I had us detour our route home to meet up w/ you and drive Polaraco.  The fight would look something like this:

But I know where Dover is.  I went to college in N. Jersey - near Morristown.  Next time I know I'll be near your area I'll give a heads up.  I'd love to see Polaraco in real life.  (http://www.moparfins.com/forum/smileys/smiley8.gif)

I don't have too many parts catalogs, but Raymond willed me all his. . . .

Drew University - back when Tom Kean was our school prez.

If I pull that she'll reply with "Oh by the way - I want a divorce."  (http://www.moparfins.com/forum/smileys/smiley36.gif)
