    Does the exhaust pipe on a Ford Excort 1994 have some sort of a metal ring, right where is clamped to the muffler?

    The inlet pipe into the muffler rusted out and broke off. So did the clamp.

    Now there is a metal ring left on the exhaust pipe, and I don't know if it is just remnants from the rusted out muffler inlet that I pried out.

    I need to change the muffler, and get a new clamp. What size clamp should I get?

    Thank you in advance!!

    IIRC, OEM piping circumference is 2". The stock muffler should slip into the exhaust pipe or the other way around but either way you need the clamp you described to keep it together.

    Thank you--I bought both 2" and 1 7/8" clamps.
    I think the half inch ring left on the exhaust pipe (midpipe) is a remnant of the muffler inlet pipe, and will need to pry/cut it out.

    Hard to explain without a picture. I will try to get one.

    the factory exhaust is 1 7/8. but a 2in clamp should work fine on the slightly larger muff input diameter.
