When I got MF 12G, it didn’t have a muffler. In with the extra parts that came with it was a chrome guard for the deluxe muffler that was offered on the 12. I have looked for a replacement but have not found one that I wanted to use. So, I decided to build one.

Since I only found a partial picture of a deluxe muffler on a tractor, I had to use a little imagination. I know that it is round and that it exhausts out the side. I judged that it was 4” in diameter and 12” long. I also wanted to make a quieter muffler.

The muffler I made was 4” in diameter and 11” long. I used what I had layering around for materials and for bending the metal.

I cut a piece of metal.

Formed it around a piece pipe, lapped the ends over and hammered them down.

I cut another piece of metal for the baffle and marked where I wanted exhaust to pass.

Not pretty, but I think functional.

I also made a piece for the top of the muffler to attach the guard and a support bracket.

And this is the finished product:

It is quieter than the "pepper can" muffler.

Thanks for taking the time to document your muffler build. I have one on my 12G and it is a lot quieter than any of the pepper shaker styles, no question.

I have been thinking of making / having one made for Ryan for Christmas for his MF10.

I like looking at things that are home made like that,it shows the time and effort that one puts into making there own funtional parts.Its amazing how much time & work actually goes into making a simple muffler .Good job nice looking tractor too. Larry
