Square flange in front of the cat
« on: July 24, 2012, 08:56:18 PM »
Anyone know a place where I can buy just the flange?
I see has a direct fit cat that already has it, but when I bought my wagon the previous owner was nice enough to include a universal cat and I'd like to avoid buying another one.

I see Walker sells 2- and 3-bolt flange kits; but no 4-bolt version.   Have any mom & pop exhaust places near you??   Maybe they might have an old cat in the junk pile with the same flange you could cut off and use.   Or maybe get someone with a CNC machine to cut you one (probably expensive to do that tho).   I'm outta ideas......

Jeep XJs use them. Check your local parts store or junkyard.
'87 Comanche 4.0L AW4/NP242 3.73 gears, lifted 5" on near new 33" tires $3500 obo
'82 Eagle Wagon (Brown Betty) 4.2L/727/NP229 and soon 8.25 rear axle and non-vacuum 3.08 front to match. 235/75/15 tires. It's down to minor body work (someone creamed my driver's door but I have another in good shape) almost rust free and interior work (seats are worn and carpet torn). $2000 but about to go up due to more work being done.

I have a stock converter that I just took off my eagle that is still laying on my garage floor with the rest of the exhaust system. If you want the flange off the converter I will cut it off and ship it to you for the price of the ride. If interested just let me know other wise its going to the scrap yard.
