    My 94 Walker C muffler is blown out. A big chunk fell out the other day while mowing.

    I was wondering if anybody has replaced their muffler with anything other than an original muffler.

    I did a search but nothing came up but the welding a muffler thread. I don't want to do that. I need a new muffler.

    A website I went on had a Super Quiet Muffler that would work but I would have to turn the exhaust line 90 degrees so it would work. I don't think I need to do that, don't want to screw something up on my machine.

    Walker said they want $140 for the muffler. OUCH.

    I think it's a $35 part, but let me know which way anybody has gone before. If I have to I will spend it.

    that muffler #6013 is $90, exhaust pipe #6047 is $17

    it wouldn't be hard to retrofit another outlet on an aftermarket one though.

    what site did you find the superquiet?

    email me with the page, and i'll take a look.

    Hey captdevo,

    I emailed that website to you a while back.

    I would like to get this fixed but my Walker dealer is a jerk.

    I don't know who makes this muffler for Walker. I could contact them personally to get it through them.

    Let me know.

    Indiana,

    sorry, it's been crazy around here...busy, busy....

    the muffler at jacks for $35 isn't the one i emailed you about, i think it was $70 or so.

    the one for $35 is only a screw in type with arrestor i think.

    personally, i would spent the money for the Walker,

    it's been there for 7+ years, that's not bad,

    also, they are strong and have mounts for the original heat shield too
