Someone, either here or on MTF, recently made their own muffler out of all SS. Drilled pipe and a baffle. Looks like it came out pretty nice. They said it sounded good too. I can't remember who it was, but if you're considering making one, it's worth searching for.
Or wait for someone younger with a better memory to pop into this thread and link it :grin:

I could be wrong but the name Ken Cunningham is tugging at my memory. Do a search under "stainless steel muffler" and see what turns up.
You kids with your good memories! :lolno:

It was Ken. And it wasn't recently, started 12/26/09. Linky

I just made my own muffler from scratch out of stainless steel for my 646 project. I used Kcunningham's thread on MTF as a guide and it turned out really well. I have no fabrication or welding experience at all. All that I did was cut and shape the pieces to the same size and configuration of the original muffler and then had a local fab shop weld everything up for me. Total cost with parts and labor was $90 for a muffler that will outlive me.



I didn't take pictures of the baffles, but they are simply the in and out pipes extended roughly half way inside of the muffler. Then holes are drilled through those pipes. If you commit to making your own muffler, take apart the original and you will see how simple they really are. Good luck.

JSB Case how does your muffler sound, loud, mettalic?
I wish that I could tell you. I am still waiting for the engine to return from a rebuild. The fab shop that welded the muffler for me thought that it would be quieter than the stock muffler since the new one was built out of heavier gauge steel inside and out. I can't wait to find out myself.

Glad to see my old post helped someone. Ive got pics of some side plates i made for the front scraped blade that i havent gotten around to posting yet. Much easier to move dirt from one place to another without loosing it out the sides. Also have some rear wheel weights im working on and will post pics on those, they will be made out of 6 inch 300# pressure class forged steel blinds. Anyone should be able to get these from there friendly local industrial pipe dist. Luckily for me i happen to work at one. 50 pounds apeice and can be had for 50 dollars or less, depending on how friendly they actually are.
