Made a muffler

Recommended Posts

neil56
G'day again, I finally made a new muffler for my 7016, thanks to Dutch for providing me with a drawing of the dimensions etc. and Waxen, (our other Aussie member)who picked up the materials for me, try as I might I couldn't get the outlet pipe to line up with the hole in the bonnet (engine cover), I only had a couple of plumbing elbows to work with, so I made an outlet pipe with a double offset in it. Does the job, and much quieter than what was there before.

Neil, That is an outstanding job for a home made muffler. You must own/have access to a sheetmetal shop. My original muffler has a baffle rattling around inside and I am going to engineer a system one of these days. Thinking about a 16" vertical stack on the opposite side. Ike

Also Neil, if you make a sleeve that goes beyond the bonnet when it is down, you will find it to be quieter yet. I have one for my 7010. The drawback however is I forget remove it when I lift the lid.

Thanks for the compliments , and no, it is not stainless, just a piece of 4.25 " exhaust tube, Waxen found a place that had ready made perforated pipe, it had the right sized holes for the outlet pipe, and i drilled them larger for the inlet pipe, welding was easy as i have a MIG, cheers Neil,
