Talladega exhaust numbers
« on: October 12, 2017, 06:28:21 PM »
I have placed this post in Torino Cobra and other forums with no replies, so with all due respect, I am posting here due to the vast correct knowledge of Jeff and others and hope you can help us.

I recently sourced a concours (needing freshening) Talladega for a friend of mine and it is now in his garage.
Apparently it had not been started for some time and when we got it going, it blew all the accumulated rust out of the exhaust system causing pinholes in the mufflers and tailpipes.
So now we are trying to replace the mufflers and tail pipes with correct ones if this is possible.
In the first instance, the numbers on a muffler are: A <-> B 17882 and 1258 under the 17882
Any advice would be very much appreciated.

Guess you have already checked the MPC to get the part numbers.  Don't think your going to be able to find assembly line parts or at best I don't think anyone is reproducing them well. This leaves you with used or service replacement mufflers and tail pipes which are going to have different dates and may be slight different in design some way.


Believe that the items were the same as the 69 428CJ Fairlane/Torino parts. Sorry if I'm incorrect as I've only owned one Talladega
 
Looking at the last MPC they show that by these parts had already been replaced and were being serviced by D0ZZ-5032-R (mufflers) and D0OZ-5255-G &  D0OZ-5255-H (tail pipes) parts :(

You will need to find someone with a 1969 MPC copy that covers that section. Its found in the text, not the illustrated pages, of the manual in section #52.  Have part of a Aug 68 MPC but not that section
