Re: Flexible exhaust hose for generator

Not sure what kind of bends you need to make...but here goes!

I think I would go with hard copper lines and use fittings as needed to make the exhaust. Where the spark arrestor screen bolts down with the silver plate, I would use a compression joint ring between the plate and muffler for the connection. Set up the piping for best use, and with an eye for easy removal.

Got any pix of your generator drawer set-up?

Re: Flexible exhaust hose for generator

try Detroit Flexible Metal Products in troy mi, they have all kinds of neat plumbing, they may also use Auto Cycle Marine on the web.
they have corrigated stainless tubing and also Marmon flanges and clamps, they can also make up any adapters that you may need.

we also used to get 2 1/2'' ss exhaust flexpipe from NAPA, I'd bet that they can order any diameter that you want.

be prepaired for sticker shock if you call DFMP or ACM

Re: Flexible exhaust hose for generator

Depending on how the exhaust comes out of the genny, can you make an exhaust pipe that is perma-mounted in the wall, and the pipe in the genny just slides into it? Maybe use a hose clamp to tighten it down?

Saw some inexpensive flex stainless LP gas lines today at Tractor Supply...not sure if they are lined, or what with.

Re: Flexible exhaust hose for generator

The hardware bible exceptional !!!!!! McMaster Carr If you can't find what you are looking for they probably have it and they are on line and are the largest UPS shipper in the world to boot. If you order by 4 you will most likely have it by the next day. sportyrick loves McMaster Carr.......need SS sheet metal screws for your outside trim MC has them, roll rubber for your floor, they have it, tools, parts, almost anything you can think of they have it and they are cost competitive. sportyrick
