73 TR7RV question

This is my first Triumph, and my first motorcycle in 20 years. I have a couple of easy questions. First, I need an exhaust fin and I measured it at 1-3/8. When I looked on-line they all seem to be 1-5/8. Does that sound right?? Can somebody point me to a good place on-line to get parts for the Triumph?? Also, what actually holds the exhuast into the head?? It looks like it just slids into the head and the two mounting bolts on the frame hold it in. I thought there would be a "doughnut" or something. It seems to have leaked a little exhuast on the outside of the exhuast pipe, it is a little black on the outside.

Thanks
TangoMike

Wow, thanks for the link. I am in the US, is there any issue with ordering from Canada?? Like customs. exchange rate or anything like that??

Also what actually keeps the muffler from sliding ot of the head?? The frame brackets only?? Or is there a nut or pin somewhere around the head that I am missing??

The pipe is just a slide in fit. If its loose use some silicone sealer or make a shim out of thin metal. The brackets coming off the front of the engine are the only thing holding the pipes. Make sure they are tite. Ordering from Canada's no problem, they will handle the exchange rate, automatic if you use a credit card. However, if you want to order US try Klemps, Baxter's, Britich Only or MAP for a start.

Everything will be alright in the end.
If its not alright, its not the end.

Or walk into any of the Triumph-British bike shops here in Portland. They usually have that stuff on the shelf.

Thanks, the exhuast does have a good fit so that is the way it is suppose to be.

Thanks for the store tip. I just made an assumption they would not carry anything for a 73, just new stuff
