Baffled!!


Hi all,
Decided to attend to a loose side pipe at the weekend, when I dropped it off I discovered that a PO had removed the first section of baffles which probably explains why it's so loud!
My intention is to insert a straight through type silencer into the casing to hopefully quieten things down a bit, I have all the materials to hand, just need to get the old mufflers out.
I've managed to move them just clear of the outer casing but can't get them any further, it looks like when they were fitted they were smothered in exhaust cement so proving difficult to get out, any suggestions gratefully received!

Sunday night I gave it a good soaking with WD40 then last night I got some 3 in one penetrating spray and gave it a good dose of that so will try knocking it back in again and maybe can work it in and out until it comes free?

That exhaust cement dries quite brittle doesn't it Graham? Maybe a tap around the outside of the pipes with a copper headed mallet to try and crack it without damaging the outers??

Tried that with my plastic hammer but because of the tight gap it is still wedged in position, I managed to move it about 3" then no further Sad

Managed to get one out of the outer casing, made up a silencer with 2 end caps on a length of perforated stainless tube wrapped with wadding and welded into the case and refitted into the outer, the other side refused to budge so I had to weld that together in situ which was a bit more tricky as it meant working about 6"down inside but got there in the end, went for a run last weekend and my co pilot was much happier, seems to run OK and put an end to all the banging from the exhaust on the over run.
Another job crossed off, managed to get another speedo which seems to work OK and clocks up the miles as well which mine doesn't so putting together a job list for inside the dashboard, so far it's change speedo, fit new ammeter, sort vacuum valve for wiper door and fit all new bulbs, probably go led for them.
