What's your take on the muffler on that tractor? Is it original or an afterthought?  If I noticed that before, I must not have paid attention.

Hi Doug Here are pictures of it.A long time ago I read a post somewhere that someone had Standard literature ,I think for a twin that had muffler hand written on a parts list with a part number.I have no idea about this,I have never had or seen another Standard,Walsh,Monarch or twin with any muffler.It is marked Gray-Hawley MFG. on it.Does yours have a threaded exhaust elbow? If not it doesn`t really mean anything it would be easy enough to tap on the engine but if it does maybe it was an option? Chuck

My oldest Gravely is a 1950.  There is a neat video on you tube of someone using  a D at the Mow In at Portland.  I was there but didn't see it.  Maybe wrond day.

Thanks, Chuck. The picture below is what my exhaust looks like. It loks like that muffler would be a lot of weight hanging on that elbow with no support. I'd say it was probably an aftermarket add on but hard to say with these guys. they sure didn't spend any more than they had to on the tractors.

Our Monarch  exhaust elbow isn't threaded.  None of the images I have seen in our catalog show a muffler.  Just a hole, like Doug's photo shows.

Doug, was there such a thing, or do you want to convert one?

Larry W.

The first ones were water cooled. They were single wheel and look similar. The only thing I don't know for sure is if they were actually considered a D or some other model. The water tank is where the oil tank is on the later ones so I'm not real sure how they were lubed. I used to know of about 5 in existance.

Here is our Twin. We believe it is a Standard and not a Viking. No tag and missing some parts. Blount plow A08.

Candy, I'd agree with it being a Standard. The Vikings of that era had different wheels. In your second picture of the missing manifold, notice the valve cover plates held on with 2 bolts. There is a little ledge under them that is just barely visible in the picture. Sand along that edge under the front plate and you should find the number.
