Muffler replacement

Recommended Posts

mshowar
I am looking for a Muffler fix. I replaced the Engine in my Simplicity 3410S and the muffler that came with the new engine is a small square box that sits right off the exhaust port. Unfortunately, It sticks out too far and I can't put my hood back on. I still have the muffler that was on my old engine (canister type). However, I think it might be a little worn out because I can hear pieces inside rattling when I shake it. The thing that is nice about the old one is that it mounted infront of the engine via an elbow off the exhaust port so I could close my hood. Should I just use my old muffler or can I get a replacement that will work? Mark

On my 3410,I used a small pipe,and elbow,and bought a round can type muffler. It's angled toward the front,and sticks out of the hood a little bit. I can get a picture if you need one. I wasn't about to pay upwards of $60-70.00 for a new replacement muffler.

Mark, here's an option if you want something different. I put a vertical IH Cub muffler on my 3410H (repowered with a B/S cast iron 16 hp). The muffler, two short pipe nipples, and one elbow - plus the flapper - cost less than $30. It is, however, significantly noisier than the original.

And, apologies to everyone for the Bolens G14 in the picture!!

      Good morning peeps! I’m always searching for helpful information with my AC collection. Hope to find out new information and pass on my own experience in restoration. Here are some pics of my babies. I’m still looking for front rims for the 410 so yesterday I put the 310 wheels on took it for a drive. Working pretty good but still needs some carb work. Gotta get the 310 running next. Have a great day!😁
