Wedge List / TR8 Exhaust - Tranny Bracket standoff on exhaust
« Last post by Todd Kishbach on May 14, 2017, 06:37:37 AM »
Stock piece is a squared off U shape.  It sits exactly 3/4b off the pipe and

is two inches long at the face.  Start with a piece of steel 3.5b long and

bend each side over at 3/4b.  FWIW, a 2.25b exhaust fits fairly easy where

the stock 1.75 does.  You go from a cross sectional area of 2.4 sqb to

almost 4sqb.  Fitting a 2.5b gets much more difficult and a 3b is just

barely possible and hangs a bit low.

Wedge List / TR8 Exhaust - Tranny Bracket standoff on exhaust pipe
« Last post by Jack Brooks on May 14, 2017, 12:17:45 AM »
Quick question:



I am building a new exhaust system from scratch and I need the dimension for

the standoff on the exhaust pipe right after the catalytic converter.  This is

the standoff that the exhaust bracket mounted on the bottom of the

transmission bolts up to.  All I need to know is how far off the pipe the

bolting surface is located.  This locates the exhaust pipe off the centerline

of the car.  It seems like it should be about 3 / 4 of an inch.  This is a

small three sided bracket welded to the exhaust pipe about 18 inches after the

connection to the cats.



If someone has one they can measure, I would greatly appreciate knowing this

dimension.  It is how much the bracket stands off the side off the side of the

exhaust pipe to meet up with the transmission mounted exhaust hanger bracket.

I can eyeball the rest of the bracket.



For the inquisitive, the system is stock exhaust manifold, stock cats, stock

sized 1-3/4 pipes off the cats, with a 1-3/4 H-pipe, into a 2 inch

Brockman<http://www.brockmancustomparts.com/> 26 body x 36 overall glass

pack mufflers and a 2 inch over the axle straight pipe out the back. Yes,

glass packs, but very long ones that should be moderately quiet in normal

street driving. <I hope>



Also, for those that are interested, my exhaust guy told me that the stock

bend coming off the cats is a 20 degree angle.



Thanks in advance,



Jack

Wedge List / TR8 EFI Air Cleaner

I have not had need for a replacement aircleaner filter element for some

time.



To save fiddling around at the local parts store  ..... has anyone found a

cheap replacement that fits the OEM housing (or can be made to fit) from a

Japanese or Korean model ?    The last time I cut and glued up a  Ford unit.

Just google 'electrical feed through connectors' and you will find a large

number types and suppliers.

Jody,



I replaced my in-tank with a Facet pump; same car.



It's worked flawless, cost less and much easier to replace.



Purchasing directly from Facet saves money over a parts house.

Pump is easy to find as already mentioned.



Assuming the corrosion on the plate and pump bracket is not too bad,  I would

look into replacing the electrical through fittings.  There must be a

generic replacement available from an electrical supply house somewhere.

Yeah, mine had done that too. I got the pump with the sock from Woody. I got

the plate with the leads from a kind hearted person on one of the forums.

Other than someone having one they're willing to give up, I don't think they

are available anywhere.

Hello.  I am looking for a source for the entire in-tank fuel pump assembly

for my 1980 carbbd TR8.  I have seen the replacements pumps with the sock

filter, however, on mine the electrical leads have broken off where they go

thru the tank flange.



Thanks,
