This summer I treated the 195 to a repro muffler. I was just out plowing snow with it tonight and it started to sound more like my truck. I got back in the garage and noticed the flange came off that mounts to the exhaust port. Now, was this flange anything of a good idea in the beginning? Seems most I see have a threaded pipe screwed into the exhaust port with the pipe clamped on it. Any thoughts? I may tack it with the wire welder and take it to work and TIG it if this is just a freak thing. Either way it's still better than the erector set of plumbing and pepper pot the PO had on it.
