1925-1927 Buick Standard Correct Muffler & Exhaust pipe

Recommended Posts

I did a lot of searching today for the correct muffler for my 1925-25.  I was coming up close but never quite there in trying to find what Dave Chambers described in his 1971 article.  After going thru all the mufflers on the Summit site and a few others, I thought about looking at the Myers Early Dodge website.  I contacted them, and they have the correct muffler as was also used on the 6 cylinder Dodge Brothers car.  24" x 5" muffler with 2" inlet and 1 1/2" outlet.  This should be correct for 1925-1927 standard with the 1925 standard needing a 2" x 1 3/4 adapter.    Here is Myers link.   www.myersearlydodge.com   Myers also sells the old style clamps which are nice because if you do your exhaust right, you can usually separate the parts later if you have to.  

Also dimensions for the exhaust pipe from my 1925 Buick Standard.  This is the factory flange (with part number 174574) and the 1 3/4" pipe is swedged into the flange.

I have an old one for a pattern.   Yours for the postage and a promise that you will become the caretaker and keep it until someone else needs it or return it.

Fred:

 I will probably take you up on that. The muffler from Meyers Early Dodge came in around 12:00 today. Wow 2 day delivery!

I have a 26 Buick  and 27 Buick. I used a Walker Sound FX Muffler # 18253. Was around $35 at most auto parts store.  There is one bracket to cut off. Sounds just like the old buick muffler. Walkers website has all the measurements for it.  Good Luck.

Thank you Grant I will try him.

 The muffler I got from Myers looks to be the correct size and configuration. I will only need a reducer collar for proper fit.

Grant,

I did send a note to "sat1966" and he said that he did not have a pattern for a 1925 Buick Standard.  Between Larry and I , I would like to send him a pattern.  He did say that he could make the parts if he had a pattern.  His prices did look reasonable, and I would prefer to be able to purchase a pipe and install it in my garage rather than wait at a muffler shop and have someone fabricate a one off system.      Hugh

Thanks Hugh. My sentiments exactly. But you seem to have a similar issue as me. My exhaust was system was incorrect and poorly fitted. While yours has not been on the car with the splash shield to check for a good fit. Also considering at the auction where your car came from there were several later Buicks in a disassembled state to complicate the mix and NOT match situation.

Larry,  

     Agreed on the hodge podge method used to assemble a car to be able to push it across the auction block.  I have also found many of the correct parts and sold off many of my wrong year stuff.  My exhaust pipe does have the correct 1 year only flange on the exhaust pipe, so I am pretty sure this pipe is correct.  I really won't know for sure until I get my engine back though.  Hugh
