Hi Luna . The twin exhaust pipes are the standard setup for our 1970 to 1972 250/8 sedans. As I previously posted , I changed to the Timevalve.com SS product 15 years ago and it does not show any deterioration anywhere. The system is quiet and has excellent airflow. Still haven't got my 45 mm. chrome tips. Harald

There are two pipes measuring 1 3/4" outside diameter or precisely 45 mm. A nice mellow tone and a bit more aggressive sounding than the cheaper aluminized steel version.This carb rebuilder you mentioned in one of your post, would they sell parts for the the Zenith?
I need a float housing vent valve. Harald
