D&D fatcat Muffler reinstall

I removed my D&D Fatcat Muffler on my 07 FXDL to change my tire and now I can not get the muffler to go back on to the head pipe. When I took the muffler off it was very diffuclt to get off and took over 3 hours.

Anyone have any ideas on getting the mufffler back on with out damaging it.

I haven't had that problem on anybike bike I have owned, except for my new 2012 SG. What I did was get the muffler started as best I could, laying a rag (or a towel) over the end of pipe, holding a 2x4 at the end and keeping the muffler straight with the pipe and tapping it with rubber mallet.

I'm sure you have it back on by now, but hears a tip. Make sure the muffler is clean ie where it slips over the pipe. Then use a liberal amount of ANTI-SIEZE on both surfaces.
It will help in instalation and also the next time you have to take them apart. Just wipe off excess. After you get it hot, some might ooze out but it will wipe off easily

that will work, can also use silicon spray. should slip right on as long as both surfaces are clean.
