Muffler

Recommended Posts

I need to repair the flange that attaches the muffler to the engine.  Do I need anything besides a new gasket to seal things?

I would suggest using a tap to clean the threads and a couple of new bolts too.

 Some anti-seize on the threads of the bolts could be helpful for future removal also

Highly recommend the Anti Seize, can I say that again as a professional small engine mechanic.  Put Anti Sieze on the bolts!    But yes, chase the threads out with a bottoming style tap, new gasket and reinstall and torque to book spec.  After a couple of heat cycles, retorque the bolts as they will tend to back out a touch after a few heat cycles and can lead to the gasket burning thru.       Mike the Aspie
