This is interesting. A few years back, I had a back pack blower
come in the was seized up. Make a long story short, what had
happened was it some how ingested a peice of arrester screen.

Funny thing is, is that I had removed the screen years before
that you fine at the exit hole of the muffler.

I shook the muffler and heard a rattle, and I HAD to cut it open.
What I found was a second arrester screen built into the baffles
of the muffler. Who knew.

Since then, I give all the 2 cycle stuff the rattle test. Now I'll be
adding the the 4 cycle mufflers too.

This is a good thread, I hope you and some of the other 4 cycle
gurus keep adding to it.
