A buddy gave me his GT18 belt drive (I think it's model 917.253745). The bottom air cleaner body (the pan under the air filter) has five original holes with three hoses routed into them. I'm suspicious that the hoses are in the wrong holes. 

 

Would someone with this engine please take and post a picture of the bottom air cleaner body with the filter removed, with the camera looking straight down onto the filter pan?

 

Thanks.

Thanks.

 

When I got it, the two small hoses were routed into the holes outside the filter. I stared at it for a while trying to figure out why that would make any sense, and then moved them to the positions shown in the picture.

Just went out to double check mine...they go in the holes inside the filter body. Tried to get a pic, flash isn't working.

PO may have not wanted to hassle with getting them into where they belong...eh, whatever...they DO go where you have them.

Thanks. On a related note, this engine is loud. I suspect the muffler is shot. Any ideas on options for replacement?

The part number is 110887x muffler. Googled it and there are several USED ones on Ebay.  Found one listing for a new one...$250+.  Bit rich for my blood but, if I were trying to keep this thing up to snuff would bite the bullet, after...making sure there wasn't another available.

Kick it around on this forum.  Guys are always willing to help.2nd restore project.jpg

Grrr  Didn't mean to post 2 pics.  Can't seem to delete one.

Good looking tractor! We do have a manual for it here that includes a parts listing.

Thanks for the part number Phlupy. I'm wary of a used muffler, since I doubt it would be much quieter than the one I have. 

 

I already found the manual that you posted KennyP, thanks. However, it says the muffler is part number 100228N. What's the difference between 100228N and 110887x?

I'm thinking the 110887X is for a later model GT18, but not real sure. If you could post a pic of your muffler, it might help. Though the part #'s are different, the parts pic for my GTV16 looks to be the same muffler.

Here's a screen shot of the parts list for your tractor's muffler.

The 110887X muffler on E-Bay looks to be the same one. Not a bad looking muffler.

Had a bit of a problem responding to this post when I realized this could be an 'apples and oranges' situation. Your exhaust appears to straight out to the side, mine is angled slightly forward.

Your concern with a used muffler was mine also...out of the frying pan into the fire, so to speak.

KennyP hasn't steered me wrong with his opinions.

As for the noise: We have 2 Craftsman GT's in our stable one Onan, the other B&S.  The Onan is barely audible @ 25 feet, B&S not quite so, but tolerable in use, IMO, like comparing Cadilac to VW.  :)

The one on E-Bay may be angled also. Hard to tell from the pics! Of course, the muffler #'s may have changed several times also.
