How do I connect these?

Hi all -

Trying to connect new tailpipe to existing exhaust. My old tailpipe just fell off. The clamp would not come off (years of rust), so I had to take the sawsall to it, but I finally got it off.

So I am left with trying to connect the new tailpipe to the existing exhaust..but the diameters are the same. As you can see here:


I think this is because the tailpipe broke off after the clamp...so do I have the old end of the tailpipe on the end of my exhaust? If so, what the heck do I do now? This is what it looks like, sorry for the wrong target for focus:



The exhaust looks usable, so I would like to keep it. Here is another view if it helps:



Any ideas?

if I do that, the hangers that hold up the tailpipe will be offset, how do I deal with those?

Thanks

I don't have access to a welder to do that. Are there any other ideas out there? Maybe a really easy solution in the spirit of labor day - reducing my labor and just getting it done?

go to the parts store buy a reducer one that will fit over the tip of muffler and into the new pipe then get a clamp to tighten together might cost about $10 or i think they even sell connectors that just go over both and then just clamp

A muffler shop should be able to expand the pipe for you.

The band clamp is your cheapest route, unless you get a new muffler. Just Take it to a muffler shop and let them take care of it. you will get out for less than 100 bucks.

for what ur working with a new muffler looks to be the best route. because that muffler looks two steps from shot, and that way u wont be worrying about it later down the road. in below zero weather believe me it sucks to change one in the snow.

This is the easiest way to get going.

This is the easiest way to get through to next spring, without frostbite.

i seem to remember you asking this a long time ago and me telling you you're gonna have a hard time just putting the pipe on. your old tailpipe is still on the muffler, like you said, it broke off after the clamp, and honestly that muffler looks too far gone to remove the old tailpipe part that is sitting on top of it. a new muffler is like 35 bux, i'd just get a new one.

even if you succeed in not replacing it now, you'll be doing it all over again all too soon.
