    Underslung exhaust ground clearance

    Hi Crednonites !

    I'm just curious as to how much exhaust to ground clearance that a Crendon fitted with a 351W would normall have? Where would the lowest point in the system be & where do the collectors end up (ie. are they tucked in close to the block etc.) Any pics would be great.
    Thanks!
    Pete

    At no point in the whole exhaust run is the exhaust the lowest point of the car, so this is 100% a non-issue on a Crendon.

    The only time I have ever grounded the car out was when I hit a vicious road depression at, um, "interesting" speeds, and then the fuel tank straps grounded. The suspension was bottomed out and then some.
    Crendon has left the building................bright yellow Stag has landed.

    Thanks Wilf - that's good to know.

    (don't quite know what was up with my spelling earlier today!)

    I know it isn't your original question but another plus is the height of the oil cooler scoop from the road. It will miss speed bumps easily.

    Also, if you have a small block motor the sump is tucked nicely up between the chassis rails so out of harm's way.

    Wilf can confirm, but I guess the bottom edge of the gearbox bellhousing is the lowest point?

    Nope - it all tucks up neatly between the chassis rails.
