PUCH 175 SV Exhaust Baffle Intermediate Pipe

Post by Falcon_52 » Fri May 19, 2017 8:43 am

I have a question for the more experienced Puch owners - I did a search but couldn't find anything. I have a 175 SV and noticed when I rebuilt the engine and disassembled the exhaust that I appear to be missing the short "intermediate" pipe that should be pinned to the front of the exhaust baffle. The previous owner must have tossed them.

Well, I got some replacements from RBO in Austria and was trying to reassemble everything last night but I can't quite get the baffle back in all the way. It seems that I'm stuck with about 5mm left to go back in but I'm being stopped by the exhaust downpipe. Is there a trick to getting these back in and mated with the downpipe? It seems like an odd connection since the intermediate pipe is converging with the downpipe at an angle. Any advice would be appreciated.

Thanks!
