Re: 65 Ranchero exhaust woo's

Not helping you any, but I have run ito exhaust
issues of my own on my 65.

I'm going a different route
5.0 so it needs the bellcrank ball adaptor
Using (or attempting to) 65-66 Mustang exhaust pipes and manifold.

FYI---the Mustang straigt back manifolds just barely clear the steering box. The Mustang exhaust pipes will not work without some modifing.

The pipes hit the floorboards as the angles are not quite correct for The Falcon.

Trying to get some of this worked out as there is no way a muffler guy is
going to want to remove my bellcrank adaptor 10x to get a pipe to fit correctly.
Early Fairlane exhaust pipes might be a better option----but where would one find one

66 ElCamino-307/5spd
