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.
