One of the exhaust stubs on my 72 Bonnie just fell out! When the new one arrived, 70-9516, it was not what I expected! Having discussed this with my local Triumph parts supplier it would appear that a previous owner has modified a push in head to take push over exhausts. However, the other exhaust stub, which I cannot remove for love or money, clearly has a thread on it as you can still see about 2 threads showing whereas the LH side is smooth but tapered, 36.5mm down to 35.5mm. All very mysterious!
Before I find someone who can make me a 'special' does anyone of you UK guys know if someone amongst the many Triumph specialists here in the UK already supplies these things?

You need to contact Seager Engineering who CNC these stubs in over sizes, sounds like you need the same service I do eg one port needs a new thread which they do also.

Actually the opposite to you. Somehow, for some reason that new part I bought was way to big to fit the hole. The threaded part of that new one measures 1.625" or 1 5/8".
My port measures 36.5 mm or 1.437" in old money. That's 1 7/16".
And no thread visible just tapered slightly.
I just don'y know what I've got here at all.
I'll email Seager though, they may know and supply other types.

Cheers

Someone has welded up your port, it needs boring out and tapping to take the proper stub, mine had a stub with the plain end stuffed in a threadless port, which will need welding etc etc.

Late '72 had push-in pipes,not screw-in spigots.
I'd never butcher one of these heads by tapping a thread in it.Just turn up another push-in spigot,and make it a tighter fit.It does very little damage,if it ever comes loose.

Most push-in pipes are a loose fit,and that causes no great harm.

If a threaded spigot gets very loose (it can happen,and does),then you've got some real damage.

There's a good thread (no pun intended!) on this topic with a cutaway photo by John Healy, here:
