Stack Mufflers

Recommended Posts

Out of curiosity, and as an idea to quieting down my single cylinder briggs, do stack mufflers have to point up? Or can they be mounted horizontially or angling downward. Thanks in advance, Mike

They can point anywhere you'd like them to -- as far as how they operate. However, putting them so they don't interfere with something or blow smoke/exhaust where you don't want it becomes the challenge... As an example, I've had to "fine tune" the installation of the stock Briggs cannister mufflers a couple of times because they pointed down too much in front of the tractor and would blow dry leaves all over the place... Someone here has shown pictures of putting a short, stack-type muffler up in front of the grill and mounting it cross-ways so it pointed toward the other side of the tractor.

You can find stack mufflers that will get above your head, or add a pipe to em' to gain some height. This too will help get the sound above you. However I don't think they do as good for sound as the older canister orriginals. They give those good ol' Briggs a tone all their own.

The stock muffler on my 7116 is about the best noise supressing device I have seen on any machine. On a hard pull mowing, the mechanical noise from the engine is more prevelant then the exhaust noise. It is not the true exhaust silencer you see on buildings but it is not my 3112 coming down the street and my whole neighorhood knows it is me.

      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!😁
