Default Maytag Makeover, My First

Purchased a 92 several weeks ago, it started out looking like the one on the right in the first picture. After disassembly, we cleaned, blasted , and painted. With some new goodies from Mark and Zach, here are the results. The pulley was painted after these pictures were taken. Next project will be a 72

keep an eye on how your engine runs with that restrictive exhaust! Necking down to 1/2" is a sure way to coke up the exhaust manifold and port. The system is designed for 3/4 inside diameter opening, with minimal back pressure. A straight 3/4" B&S muffler suits the engine well if you cannot get an original Maytag type ball or aftermarket one. Especially with the 72s, excess backpressure will cause issues!

Thanks for the advice Andrew. Even though that is a 3/4 copper water pipe, you say the I.D. may not be large enough? Look back at my first set of pictures and see what you think about that muffler. So while we are on this subject, how restrictive are the ones like the locomotives, cannon, ect.?
