I wanted an exhaust stack for the Walk Behind but nothing loud. I got a hot dog muffler and put a piece of 2 1/2" exhaust pipe on it. You hardly know there is a muffler in there. If you want to get fancy there are all kinds of chrome exhaust tips.

I don't quite have it ready to start. I just put the carb back on. As soon as I get the air cleaner back on, I'll give it a shot.

These are some good ideas. I like them both, simple, inexpensive & functional. This would be a good topic to start on ideas for stacks or exhaust designs.

I always cringe when I see unsupported stacks. It puts a lot of stress on the engine exhaust port. The whole assembly will resonate at some frequency, and if that coincides with your running rpms it will eventually break something.

I think there was a typo. It's a 2 1/4" pipe.
