Who Knows About Mufflers?
The latest thing to rust-out on my '70 280sel six cylinder is the muffler. The original exhaust pipes were replaced by stainless steel, but the dual pipes were combined into one at the header and now it's custom from there on back.
So I have a mongrel system. The old muffler had some numbers on it (H8C 1102), but googling it does not bring up anything. The inlet is 2-1/8 inches O.D, 2 inches I.D. as near as I can tell as it was rusted off. This was female to the pipe. Neither the inlet or outlet are concentric to the round shape of the muffler as a whole. The donut hangers were welded on.
Does anyone know what brand this muffler is or how to search for a replacement?
Thanks for your help.
