Exhaust pipe joint near the fuel tank

Post by Dumindu » Mon Aug 26, 2019 11:09 pm

My car is a 1987 Toyota Tercel DX Wagon RHD 1452cc manual driven car.

Since this is a old car, exhaust pipe is a re-made one. It is difficult to remove to clean and repair.

There is a joint near the catalytic converter. After that there isnt any joint.

So I need to make a joint at rear aspect.

There is a one place which has a easy access but is very close to the fuel tank.

Would it be ok if I make a joint near the fuel tank if it is fully sealed ?

I have done that. No problems for me. I put a bolted flange on one car and on another used a compression clamp
Love those Tercell 4x4 wagons but they sure suffer from road noise.
