240d Exhaust questions.
I recently purchased a 1982 240d. I love this car but it is in need of some serious repair. The current problem... The exhaust flex tube keeps cracking all the way through. I have welded it back together but then it broke again an inch from the weld. There is a mount that secures the flex tube to the transmission. Is this mount supposed to be there? is there any common reason that these tubes break?
I have purchased a new flex tube, but I am hesitant to switch them out. I am afraid the new one will break. I am assuming that the new pipe will be more sturdy and therefore wont break. I am just looking for input here.
Also... This car is in need of a new manual transmission. Does anyone know of a reliable source for a used transmission in California? Does any one have an extra?
