Muffler should be One big can with the output sticking out the grill thru a hole if I recall. They will get some black there evn with the hole.  That Upper headlight area is hard to find and expensive when you do. Even the headlight grill and mounting is rare.  Fella in LAGT mag under the IH stories is in Huntington, IN 46750 Eurschel ???   can't recall now, Duh! has lots of Cub parts and numbers are in his ads in the mag.  Joes Outdoor power is good source for parts too and sends quick. Prices  aren't too bad.  I get lots of brands parts off epay all the time from him. Gives break on shipping if you by enough stuff! Blades come in eithr the wide frame or the narrow frame mounts. Yours is narrow frame??? I think, but better ask someone else on that. Those are pretty common parts at most shows. Spring swap meet in Portland, IN and always Way Too Much IH and Deere stuff there! Ha! Do the shows/swaps you'll find it all, and local dealers can get alot new still on smaller items.

 

Forgot to mention there is also suppose to be a big tin sheild all around the muffler, angled down some towards grill. Have that? If not, should try to find one. One could be made probly if you can bend tin. You DO still have to have the aluminum mount frame on engine to bolt to, but most times those stay with the engines when metal is removed by PO's.
