Hey Clifford.  Do you happen to have one of these exhaust connectors with the bellows for the 8V92? Mine blew out yesterday.

Tom,
   I had to get one last year for my 6V92. Jefferson was the low price at just under $400. I hope Clifford has one for you...

Tom, I would wager that Gene Russell has one up here.  Never seen so many dead engines in one place.  Spoke to your wife the other day at her workplace.  Take care.

Hey John,  Was that price for new?

Boomer,  I will call Gene tomorrow and see what he has. Karen said you came by. We will try to get over to the shop this weekend. I will call you first.

Tom Hamrick,
   That was new price. The year before I was going to replace it & the price was just over $300. Got a couple of flages from Andy & fixed the old one. It lasted a year. When I finally ordered one it went up $100. I figured Jeff went to several rallys that year & needed to recoupe some fuel expenses.  ;) I love it when Jeff isn't here to defend himself. ;D Tom, how about the guy who had the 8v92 rebuild in his garage we went to see. Wonder if he has one. I'm glad I got a new one though. It was more stout & I like the flex on it in lieu of the bellows.

Hi Clifford, Yes it is the top mount.  It is a 16 " rise and 6" run.

John, Yea I have provided Jeff with a lot of fuel money over the years!!!    :'(

Hey guys you can buy the flex or bellows from Diesel/Pro or other places and build your own buying the flanges from Napa,Jeff has those made from a muffler shop in OKC

 I buy the flanges for 22 bucks,the 90 bend for 28 bucks the mesh expansion for 53 bucks ( bellow are cheaper) a little welding and 1 ft of straight 2-1/2 in pipe you are there it's not rocket science I'll check but I believe the last ones I bought were from Tube/Flex 

 FWIW the mesh type looks better JMO they do become stiffer than the bellow type over time from the heat

It would be best if you guys didn't come up for another week or so.  Things are really tore up at the moment.
