SE6A centre exhaust hangers (O ring type)

Post by PhilE » Sat Apr 06, 2019 7:18 pm

Hi, I cannot find recent posts regarding these, older posts have recommended a hanger intended for an Allegro and purchased from ebay but these seem to be in very short supply these days. Could anyone recommend a suitable replacement? Is there a polyurethane hanger that will fit as the quality of modern rubber components does not appear to be very good these days?

The ones I have fitted don't seem to last well at all.
I would love to know if there are some better quality ones available.

A cable tie ( in parallel ) to take the load off them extends their life

I sell some decent ones at £2.50 each that last a while. However it is a very harsh environment and most people don't adjust the exhaust to hang correctly, so one always breaks first.

In my penniless days I used to use slices of old radiator hose to hold the exhaust up. Didn't last any longer but free!
