So I got this interesting home made muffler off a 1200 cub cadet I just rebuilt the engine on what are your thoughts? Should I keep it or should it go?

If it was quiet I would keep it. That's coming from an old guy.

I'd keep it too especially if it's quiet. I've made a few over the yrs and like when the motor runs quiet.

That is a tough question. If I lived in an apartment and had only closets for storage it would be gone. If it is going to take up shop space it's gone If I had available empty storage space I would keep it at least until I needed the space to store something more valuable.   Don

Does it sound any different that a plain pepper shaker?

Just about the same actually I just got a new one off eBay. This one is still really loud and is just a pain because it takes up so much room.

I'd probably toss it on the scrap pile. Maybe hang onto the old pepper shaker and any pipe fittings if they can be easily removed.
