Default How to fit a Muffler.

Hello everybody. I'm trying to put a 2.25 inch diameter muffler http://www.jegs.com/i/Flowtech/387/50251/10002/-1 onto a 2" pipe, on my 1988 B150. Without welding it, would this piece fit http://www.jegs.com/i/Dynomax/289/33...rentProductId= or what lap-joint might I need.

This is my first time doing muffler work, thanks.

Are those I.D. or O.D. diameters?

Coming off of the van is 2" O.D and the muffler is 2 1/4" O.D at both ends.

You need one of these, plus a 2" clamp and a 2-1/4" clamp.

You don't want a lap joint. A lap joiner is for joining to equal sized pipes together. One end goes inside the first pipe and the other end goes over the outside of the second pipe.

After working on cars for the past 50 years I have discovered that a muffler shop is the best way to work on an exhaust system.
They normally over price their hardware so drop by a normal auto parts store for the muffler and have the shop do the install.
Especially true if you are mating various sice pipes.
Yes, I once duals on a pickup using junkyard pipe sections and mufflers cut and gas welded to fit.
$50. worth of oxyacl and many hours of work.

Default I second that emotion...

fixing and replacing mufflers and shocks are the realm of the pro shops that have the tools, the experience and the lift to do the job properly, plus a good shop (usually not a chain shop) will price the job fairly...

there are some things I just won't subject myself to... shocks and mufflers have always been at the top of the list...
