Exhaust quick disconnects

Hey guys,

This is for the catalog browsers. I'm looking for a quick disconnect for exhaust pipes. These things are sweet, but hard to come by -- and I do know they exist.

They are bands of metal with a "hooked" edge on one end. The other side has a buckling clasp on a hinge, which you hook over the hooked edge and buckle down to squeeze the band tight around the flanges of the exhaust pipes. A good example of how these work is how some fire extinguishers are secured to their standup bases.

I hope someone understands what I mean by this and knows where I could find these. Help is greatly appreciated.

Keep Jeepin'

Re: Exhaust quick disconnects

I have not seen the ones you mention, but there are some Y pipes with a valve in them. You just turn the valve and it redirects the flow of exhaust. I was thinking about one of these for the Scrambler submarine project after it's back on the trails. That and a snorkel would be nice.

I believe the clamps you are looking for are use a lot in aircraft exhaust. Try an a/c parts catalog. Anything thats FAA/PMA approved aint gonna be cheap though.

Re: Exhaust quick disconnects

The Y pipe thing that has a door you can open and close to switch from open exhaust and mufflered exhaust is called an exhaust cutout and is made by Flowtech. http://www.flowtech.com/stuff.html They used to be available at Autozone but AZ changed their exhaust line up and I don't know if they still have them. Flowtech also makes a muffler designed for "Recreational Vehicles". It is very heavy duty. I used to have a Flowtech Raptor muffler. Great muffler until I poked a hole in it while in the rocks. Good luck.

Re: Exhaust quick disconnects

Back in my 280Z day I saw a setup where the guy put in a T..... the straight through portion (for minimum restriction) was the open pipe for the track, and the side (the base of the "T" if you will) bent around and through the muffler. The plug for street use was a bunch of rubber washers (a stack maybe 2" long and a diameter that just fit inside the pipe) with a metal washer at each end, and a bolt through all. He put it in, and tightened the nut, compressing the stack so it expanded to fill the pipe..... just like an expanding boat transom plug. Since the plug was several feet behind the T, it never got hot enough when closed to hurt the rubber. Simple and cheap.


But if we LEGALIZE it, we can't take your HOUSE!
