1956 16MS Exhaust port clamp

Postby spurrea » Thu Feb 08, 2018 8:44 pm

My 16MS has had a replacement exhaust fitted at some point but it does not have a finned manifold clamp
The exhaust seems to be fitted tightly enough
I have looked at parts catalogue but I cannot see one pictured or listed?
What size and type should I buy?

Hi Andrew,

If they are not in the parts list then they were never fitted, mine haven't got any.

Hi Andrew

The pipe fits into the alloy heads rather than on to a spigot hence no clamp is required.

As above pipe fits direct in the head no clamp required I have a rose ring on my 16ms only as I personally like the look of it

It will make your exhaust run cooler too. I used to use one, to keep the cut up feeler gauges in. I used them stop the leaks between head and pipe. Then I learnt about welling the pipe out using a "wooden carrot". Had mine turned up in steel, fit it in the pipe and hit it a couple of times with a lump hammer and the pipe is wide enough to cure the leaks. Don't even need to clamp it firmly whist doing it.
