  1. Interiors Questions and Answers
    I have a head-scratcher for you troubleshooters out there. I finally got my '57 coupe in April and spent the summer with the windows down and loving it. Now that it has turned chilly, the windows went up and I started to notice an exhaust odor in the passenger compartment. On cold mornings I...
  2. Headers and Exhaust System
    Hello, so my full length headers have been hanging low for a while, and finally kicked the bucket. My neighbor gave me a set of block hugger Sanderson headers. (If you’ve seen the set for tri five on the Sanderson website, it’s basically two of the block huggers.) The website says they don’t...
  3. Headers and Exhaust System
    I just completed installation of an 'all stainless' exhaust system using 2.5" pipes, Magnaflow 18" mufflers, etc. Unfortunately, regardless of how tight I make the clamps at the connections, the muffler (4x9x18 oval) wants to rotate... I didn't want to weld up all the joints but I might have...

    I need new mufflers on my 57 4 door sedan. Its not a muscle car by any means, just a family sedan with a stock 283. Id like to keep the old car sound, but have a quiet, nice ride on interstate. The guys in the car club suggested 30 inch cherry bombs ( because of course they did :) but i want it...

    I'm looking for an original large "tombstone" exhaust heat riser valve for a 55 265 V8. The one I need has a large weight that is rectangular with a curved top and part numbers plus "GM" stamped in the face of the weight. In later years the weight on the valve is more of a lollypop on a stick...

    Hello, Looking to have an exhaust system installed in my 57 210 wagon. I will be doing a basic system but have no clue of any shops that work on trifives. I live in Fullerton California and want to find a place close by. Thanks for any recommendations. Sean

    Right side exhaust header has a non threaded hole on the top. I've read these are used for choke controls on the carb. Do I need to plug it as the engine seems to run fine without it or add a choke to the carb (Rochester 4Jet)? the exhaust still has the heat spring valve attached. The engine...

    just got my exhaust manifolds on the car, much quieter. but aftrr driving 45 minutes, i opened the hood and discovered the chrome has turned a golden purple blue.... why is this and is it a problem?
  9. Headers and Exhaust System
    the 3 threads on the bottom of my original manifold are stripped and rusted. they also leak and are very loud. i bought new manifolds to replace them. the new ones do not have the alternator mount so i already changed the mount for that. my dad is really convinced new manifolds will hurt the...
  10. Headers and Exhaust System
    Alright! im getting brand new chrome exhaust manifolds and i have a few questions. Would I okay getting manifolds with a 2.5 inch outlet and then have an exhaust shop attach it to the rest of my stock 2" exhaust? Do the crossover pipes on stock dual exhaust systems really do enough to justify...
  11. Headers and Exhaust System
    The studs on my exhaust manifold are now pretty much shot and I am going to outright replace the poor rusted thing. I have straight styled plugs on my 283 engine, but I ordered an exhaust manifold designed to provide maximum clearance for an angled plug system. Am i going to run into issues with...

    Hi Everyone, this is my first question I have posted. I have a exhaust pipe with walker # 48043 and have not been able to come up with any info on it. I think it is for a 57 Nomad, but that is best guess. I called the Walker office the other day and he said there was no such # but there tag is...

    I wanted get everyone's opinion on the best exhaust pipe position on a 55' 3100 series truck. I've seen a few, out the rear, after the tires, under the bed steps, or none at all. What does the majority think? If you have pics please post. thanks
