Proper Muffler Clamp Installation

If like me you have lost points during the judging process on your muffler clamps, here is the proper tail pipe clamp installation.  The tail pipe clamp was painted black, with a hex bolt, castellated nut and cotter key.  Make sure that the tail pipe is correctly clamped to the frame and not over tightened to allow for expansion and contraction.  The tail pipe for the 79-B Panel Delivery, the 150-B Station Wagon and the 255-A Special Delivery was made longer and exited to the center or rear of the vehicle.  It was fastened to the spring clip bar.
