RE: muffler
That's not a Ford part number so guessing Walker / Soundmaster brand. Using a Google search the picture shows it to have a bracket on one end so see how that matches up with the hanger mount on the body. The other clue would be the muffler is usually set up so the pipes goes inside rather than outside the stubs, and they are seldom the same size on both ends.

If all else fails, most aftermarket mufflers are not engineered so the direction is critical. When it is they tend to mark the body with an arrow or words. IOW, you could use it either way in a pinch.

thanks Rupe, yes it is a soundmaster i got from napa. there are no arrows or markings for inlet or outlet. on napa web page it says non reversable i called my local napa and asked, they told me that the end with the hanger brackets was the outlet. it didnt look right to me so i called the main napa rep. they transfered me to the manufacture they told me the end with the hanger brackets are the inlet .

RE: muffler
Forgot to mention that the counter man at the parts store should have a picture in his book / screen showing the entire system with all brackes and clamps. That's how they keep track when you ask questions like this.
