Mowing with my 50 plus year old landlord 2110 with original mower deck & hit a twig(i seen it) & messed baffle up. The original part # is 108361-is new # 1675587? What happens if you run with no baffle?

No baffle = less vortex, poor side delivery and grass jammed in the corners. Get out your hammer and anvil and straighten it out. Rivet on a plate to connect the broken end.

Wow, must have been some "twig"!

You are correct.  But I don't think they're available anymore.  

See this old post I made for @MrSteele years ago that has dimensions to assist you if you decide to beat your baffle back into shape:

What probably happened is that it finally rusted through where it bolts to the deck and the blade caught it and there she went

Our reliable Sandy Lake had one for $45 plus tax & shipping(67 bucks), so i went with them. Ebay had one for $70, but went with Sandy  Lake.

I have and still use my Landlord for a bush hog. If it fits under the deck, it usually gets ground up and spit out the side! Occasionally, they will hang in between the blade and the baffle. I figure that is speeding up nature, reducing the size of rotting wood so it will lay closer to the ground and rot quicker. Green limbs are a different story, small ones are still ground up. What you hit was no "twig"
