Re: type 44 crossmember
I had the same problem with the V8Q when I dropped the exhaust to change
the tranny fluid and filter. When I put it back I put the exhaust donuts
on the wrong ends (I didn't realize they were two different sizes.)
Intead of taking the whole thing off again PITA, I marked the spots where
the exhaust was rattling on the crossmember and hammered them down by
putting a ball peen hammer on the crossmember and whacking it good with a
mallet. The crossmember is hollow so it lends itself to sculpting.
