Can anyone tell me how many exhaust brackets there should be on a 13/60?
Mine has had a new exhaust fitted by the previous owner but it all hangs really low.
It doesn't have any brackets until you get to the backbox. Is that right?

Both of mine only have two on the backbox, the only other connection / support is the downpipe although some I've seen have had a support in the area of the gearbox - this is backed up by the attached diagram. If yours is missing it's easy to buy an aftermarket clamp and bolt it to any convenient mounting point around the gearbox.

If it was made by man, it can be dismantled and rebuilt by man. Usually just not as easily.

The diff hanger is really important. In fact, that has always been what does  most of the supporting.

I tend to use a bit of the old rubber.canvas exhaust hanger, bolted to the diff front plate (penny washer) then a U clamp around the exhaust, and a simple L bracket made in a vice bolted to the other end of the strap and tucked into the u clamp.
Bit of faff getting the strap the correct length, and drilling the hole. That stuff does not like being drilled!

On my spitfire I have a solid mount to the gearbox, and then a diff hanger and one at the very back. Very solid with no movement but no noises from clanging either. Just as well, I have 1/4"clearance either side of the silencer between the chassis rails.

While I don't disagree with the importance of the diff-nose hanger, it is NOT shown as fitted in the green book, nor in the Canley Classics parts diagram. Heralds have a hanger each end of the silencer, supported on brackets welded to the RH boot outrigger. On my first Vitesse, the front one of those brackets broke off so I fitted the diff nose hanger instead. It was a significant improvement.
