Learjet, Looking forward to it.

Well, I just got off the phone with both Rex Marine and Hardin Marine. Here is a summary of my conversations and costs.

Hardin:
  • Has a 3" pipe with angled tip but the O.D. of the flange is only 4 3/4", not even 5". I would be really concerned my existing holes would be outside this diameter.
  • They do have a 3.5" pipe but the flange isn't much bigger.
  • If I buy the 4" angled tip it has a 6.5" flange and I would need to buy a 4" to 3" reducer for added costs.
  • My cost for (2) 4" stainless angled tips, with internal flappers, and 4/3 reducers is $266 + Shipping.

Rex Marine:
  • They do not have a 3" or a 3.5" stainless exhaust tip.
  • Their 4" angled stainless exhaust tip comes with a 6" Dia flange and internal flapper.
  • My cost for (2) 4" stainless angled tips, with internal flappers, and 4/3 reducer is $270 + shipping

Now, if you remember, I can get custom ones from Teauge Marine that are 3" pipe with a 6" dia flange but, no internal flapper, for $275, or with 5 people it would be $250 each. I am not considering this because I want the flapper to prevent water surges.

I tend to lean towards the 4" pipe now due to cost, flapper, and that Learjet cut out his fiberglass with not too much difficulty.... And with the one from Rex having the 6" flange to match what I have (not holes), I'd pay the extra $4.

Sorry JF, this doesn't help you with your "no cutting fiberglass" request.

So now I need to decide if I do this on the boat or do I put duel exhaust on the Avalanche first....

Yeah, Learjet never posted pictures.

As for me, I did the Avalanche exhaust and put this on the side burner. Still not sure if I ever plan to proceed but best guess will put me into next year. My 'glam' budget this year is bust...

Ok I installed my new tips bought here from a member selling a few pairs.

The tips were for a V drive so I had to cut off the up pipe and make them fit a DD. It worked perfect and I now have to wait 7 days for the 5200 to cure.

I cut the pipes as mentioned above. Made a reducer, cut the transom to fit the larger pipes, put 5200 in the original screw holes and a bunch around the tip and flange where it goes through the hull. Everything went very very smoothly.

I bought a pair as spares just in case one of mine blows out.

Kyle, How hard was it to get the old ones out? My dealer told me they were really hard to remove and they used a heat gun to soften the sealer then piano wire to cut the sealant.

The old '93 factory plastic jobbers were siliconed in with clear regular ole silicon. I thought it was really half ars but then I thought 20 years without leaking......

I took a putty knife and slid it under the edge of the old flange and it came right off without struggle. I was very much thinking it would be a pita but it was not.




Now on the 5200 marine adhesive used now days. Yes you will have a beat down deluxe removing that from anything it touches. I seriously never want to remove the MCOCD 5200 job that I did. I can see it being extremely hard to separate.




Sound wise...... I don't know. I run straight pipes and there is a slight baffle in these tips to act more as a flapper not a muffler. It was loud as I'm running open exhaust but not louder. It was lower toned but sounded the same. I'm guessing the tone was because I went from 3" to 3.5" exhaust.


Hey Bturner. I know someone "RAT" who will beat you down with severe MCOCD to just have 1 of your tips. Mitch has 1 left and he's looking for an extra to complete a pair.
