The GILSON (and Montgomery Wards) S series garden tractor had a muffler called a "Low Tone" muffler on the Briggs & Stratton engine.
The attached photo is what the Low Tone muffler looks like.
I am needing the pipe that goes from the engine exhaust port to the muffler.
I am assuming it is 1 piece and it would be threaded on 1 end and have a 2 bolt flange on the opposite end.
The flanged end would be perpendicular to the pipe (90*)....
Photos would be good too! Thanks!

I do remember the old mufflers like that. When my grandfather's tractor out its original muffler. A new one was too expensive. So we went with a round style. Have not been able to locate another original.
