  5. Fred, I would imagine you could find everything you need from A-Z Tractor. He has a listing in the Vendor Forum. If not, maybe put a Wanted ad in the Classified Forum. Best of luck in the search. Jim
  6. You had a lot going on there but you got to the bottom of it!!! Don't you just love the feeling of finally solving the problem? It doesn't get any better than that. Jim
  7. Alexdog1 I took this off a working engine. The only reason I took it off was to convert to a manual PTO. Bearings are good and pulleys are true. As far as the price and shipping, I would go to $125.00 and the shipping is $15.00 for a total of $140.00. Yes I have a Pay Pal account. Thanks for your interest, Jim (jay bee)

  11. pdlilly, I am not familiar enough with the 414-8 to know if the muffler will work or not. You can see in the pictures how the muffler connects to the engine. It is done through the use of 1" pipe fittings. I don't know how the 414 muffler connected to the engine. I have had a couple people use them on tractors that they were not designed for by using some interesting imagination and fabrication. I wish I could be of more help to you. Thanks for the interest Jim (jay bee)
  12. pdlilly I am not familiar enough with the 414-8 to know if the muffler will fit or can be retrofitted. I think the 414-8 was made from 1986-1989 and that is about all I know. You can see in the pictures how the muffler mates to the engine, but I don't know if the 414-8 can accommodate 1" pipe fittings. It probably will come down to how good of a fabricator you are or how much imagination you have. I wish I could be of more help but, I just don't have a good answer for you. Here is what one of my purchasers did on a tractor that it was not really designed for. formariz 959 Senior Member Joined: July 8, 2008 Supporter 959 837 posts Member No:484 Location: New Jersey ID: 15 Posted February 14 (edited) · Report post Well, call me crazy but here is what i decided to do with the "Jay Bee" muffler on the Electro 12. It was not bought for it but it needed one so I decided to use it. There is no room in front of engine and behind hood for it. From the air filter to the hood everything interferes.If the muffler's body was about 3" shorter then with some clever plumbing it would work but still be tight. If hood was as wide on bottom as on top even better, but it is what it is on this model. When I got this tractor from Ken B. it had a long muffler mounted horizontally which is the best way for this model as you can see on first photo. The only draw back was that the outlet on long muffler was too close to operator and one winds up having some exhaust on the face area. So based on how it was then I mounted this one also horizontally. Since it has the outlet on the side with the long pipe exhaust is directed much lower than before. No interference with PTO or implement belt changes. I will also probably fabricate an extension and have it directly under foot board aimed away from tractor. Fabricated metal bracket to attach to mufflers bracket for additional support . The Electro was always a noisy tractor specially at full throttle. Although still a bit noisy compared to others now one notices engine noise rather than muffler. At idle it is very quite and at full throttle it has a nice "throaty" sound. Sounds really solid unlike before. The original muffler fell apart inside with the loose baffles actually plugging the exhaust outlet and I bought another one like it for about $35.00 only to have exactly the same thing happen after one year. This muffler is heavy at 3Lbs 9-1/2ounces compared to a tall stack muffler with the flap on top which is only 3Lbs 1-1/4 ounces. It should last forever now.
