Muffler cap rubber spacers
« on: December 27, 2018, 06:12:33 PM »
Hi,

Many online shops show these as out of stock. Anybody knows of a replacement or someone with stock. Number 26 in parts list for muffler.

What kind of rubber is it? I replaced with something similar in shape, but very quickly they burn and crystalize!!!

Shows "back order, no stock" in my UK search. £45 for the set isn't exactly cheap either  :006:
Its better to have it and not need it than to need it and not have it..

Finally made my own with hi temp sillicone (like for gaskets). Not perfect... but very close and have worked great. A little DIY goes a long way.

Locally they had to import them and wanted about $18 us EACH and I needed 3!  So no go.

 I wish... but it has to be made of something that will withstand the heat!

Idealy you would make a mould and fill that with high temp silicone. I struggled to make a decent mould. The shape is odd (grommet).

What i did was to set the extended washer, washer and bolt as it would be screwed in (without the grommet in place ). I used a small bolt that had the correct thread. The filled all the space with high temp silicone as best i could, trying not to leave any air gaps. Finally i “drew” the depression in the middle by removing silicone with a match or something as wide as the original.

As i said, not perfect, but dirt cheap and has worked a treat. Ill try to get some pictures loaded.
