Andy Morris - "Two types of exhaust pipe clamps, Early 'fat' type & Late 'thin' type.  Early fat exhaust clamps are specific for EACH exhaust!  The #2 and #3 inner clamps are shaved on backside to clear the cylinder fins, bolt threads are side specific, and the #1 and #4 clamps are not shaved on backside and also threaded side specific. The #1 and #4 clamps will foul the cylinder fins if you use them on #2 and #3. They all come w/ large #8 bolts, I've seen them on 3 sandcasts up to E1873 so far.  Early clamps weigh 7.8 oz each & late clamps weigh 6.6 oz. each. "
