Its an early Nelson...there were two varieties.....the thpe you reproduce and that type. I think thats just an earlier, simpler design. You see the often on walk behinds.

From what I know these were used on the late version of B-1's and the early version of the early model B-10's (the ones with no pins on the hood thumb screws). The early version of the B-1's (ones with oil bath air cleaners) used a similar muffler that was about 1-1/2 inches shorter.

These are collectable to the handful of people who get into crazy little details of originality... otherwise almost no one knows or cares anything about them.

The walk behinds using model 14/19D briggs up through about 1962 (VC)used the shorter version.

It's less parts and less welding. Just machining the hole pattern on a mill. I'll see what I can do. Thinking same price on these as the single hole Cans. I think if I make a small run of 50 of these it will be enough for all the walk-behind, b1 and early b10 owners sm01

I have never had one on a machine. It's possible mufflers had been replaced, but a few of my older machines are in great shape...I can't imagine the Nelson rotted out on them. I've had these '64 and earlier machines with the Nelson we're used to seeing:

WB700

700

725 X2

LL

B-1

I wonder if that type was more prone to hacing the outlet toasted out of them? It doesn't look like as effective of a design.
