Exhaust seal

Post  john87 on Tue Aug 15, 2017 8:19 pm

Hi all again!!

Anyone know where to get the rubber seal between the silencer body and the downpipe on a falcon 81?? I presume some sort of "O" ring would do it, but anyone tried and what diameter and section was the "O" ring??

silencer seal

The early systems had a metal cup and a washer which did the job, later ones has an annular groove inside the silencer body, from your description, yours sounds like the latter ??? if so clear silicone sealer will do the job admirably

Hi JH,

Yes, i got the annular seal jobbie. Does not the sealant go funny with the heat??. Then again, i suppose the exhaust is a lot cooler there.. I will get my infra red thermometer out!!
