Obie's brackets are great esp with a heavier exhaust system (we have the G56 one)...and save the regular re-riveting of the side panels required before we fitted them....

The saga may be over?

My car has just arrived back from MMC with its 4th Brooklands exhaust. The sequence went like this -

👉Original exhaust cans cracked at about 2500 miles.
👉A new system with the three point support was purchased by me and fitted by MMC. The new brackets were shockingly bad (see previous post) and MMC tinkered with them but didn’t replace them.
👉The new system cans then cracked after just 300miles
👉MMC took the car back and fitted proper brackets with a loan exhaust while they completely re-engineered the silencer assembly over three months.
👉The car now has the “all new” system fitted. It looks like the original but has the three point support for the can and I am told is totally re-engineered internally with better quality materials.


Time will tell, but I am pleased that Mark and his team finally bit the bullet and took the past failings seriously enough to start from scratch to produce a nice looking exhaust with a great sound. drive

Good result IMHO, I trust that's the end of the problems and you can now enjoy the MOG....

It’s the same 3 point mounting (“upgrade”) as shown in the parts book, sorry but I’m rubbish at posting photos on here, i’ll give it a go when I get a chance.

I spoke way too soon.

The new brackets are awful, the can vibrates against the body and the heat shield, the bobbins are not supported properly and the header nuts have to be slackened off to push the bobbin studs into their respective bracket slots (the exhaust tube clamps are hard up against their shoulders).

It’s going back to Morgan for the fifth time, that is when they can fit me on a back load as it’s “uneconomical to specially come to pick up my car” (their words). banghead

The exhaust brackets on a Pembleton are a half round support on which the pipe rests, just in front of the silencer, with an expansion spring over the top (just like racing cars of old) this spring allows for engine movement and for pipes to expand & contract lengthwise.
These have proved trouble free on my car over 15,000 miles.
Might be worth copying?
