    Muffler Support Brackets

    I recently purchased a couple of muffler brackets (65318-58A & 65318-59C) for my 79 shovel rebuild. I am using stock headers and stock mufflers so was expecting the "stock" brackets to fit. Oddly the left side bracket is identical to the right side one, but cost a lot more, but more worringly the holes have been drilled so that when mounted the brasket comes outwards and not down. There is no way they will work. I have found another pair with the same OEM number with ther holes drilled 90 degrees away from the others so the bracket steps down. Has anyone any explanation for this as all of the brackets I have seen under these OEM numbers appear to be incorrect.

     those oem numbers are correct for all dual systems on 1958-1984 FL models. take a look at our 4500002 and 4500001, that's what they should look like. you'll notice the offset is a bit different, and the forward holes have diferent length tubes welded into them
