    Can the stainless steel band type clamps be used to butt-join a tail pipe to a muffler ? Butt-join meaning no slip joint of the smaller pipe inside the muffler.
  2. You will first need a band clamp without the "step". I suggest that you have the muffler and tailpipe mounted securely to the frame to prevent any movement that might cause the band clamp to fatigue.

    I would rather slip the muffler into the tailpipe for a better seal. Any muffler shop could expand your pipes to create a slip joint.

    These clamps work great. Like 57 said just make sure the muffler is attached to something. I used these on my wagon with success. ImageUploadedByH.A.M.B.1424777975.937332.jpg

    I used them on my V8 Corvair project. The engine and exhaust are mounted solidly. The clamps work great

  6. This one band clamp
  7. Yup! I even cut my header collector flanges off and butted the pipes right up!
    Band clamps eliminated all those pesky leaks.
