1949 T3 Exhausts/Mufflers
« on: 25 Aug 2005 at 06:59 »
I need a pair of the aluminium mufflers (fluted) for a Type 3 1949 model Douglas. I have the chromed steel down pipes already. Any advice on sourcing these items will be appreciated.
Thank you.

Angelo,
Should the model reference T3 be T35? - and by 'fluted', do you mean the cast aluminium 'woffle box' that the "down pipes" terminate in and which is mounted on the frame tubes beneath the gear box?

If you care to provide a photo of your bike we will add it to your posting - see here <<http://www.douglasmotorcycles.net/index.php/topic,321.0.html >> for the forwarding e-mail address or how to post the photo yourself if you prefer.

Hallo Alwyn,
The bike is a 350cc, Mk3, 1949 model.  I'm guessing that is same as T35? And yes, i mean the cast aluminium "woffle box". My restorer somehow has "lost" the original whilst restoring the bike...
any ideas where i can get a replacement?
thanks!

Wow :!: It's hardly the smallest bit that he could of lost :P and yes! - it is likely to be the same woffle box as used on the T35.

No! - but I'm sure you will eventually find one - suggest you post an specific advertisement in this section for a woffle box to suit Mark III or T35. 

Don't forget to post us some pictures of your bike - restoration progress photos are fine - then you can follow up with more pictures when it's finished.

Thanks for the advice, Alwyn!
By saying he "lost" it, i'm kinda being generous!
The restoration is already complete - the bike was in almost 100% complete condition anyway, so its been fairly straightforward. Its now undergoing final adjustments and running-in.
I'll post up some pix soon.
thanks again!

Angelo, are you still looking for that woffle box?  I have one here plus the wide stand that you can use with them woffle box and is much better (more stable) than the narrow stand used with downswept pipes.
