Default Trying to identify a muffler
Re:: very odd muffler   

A friend of mine sells vw parts for a living. During a warehouse clean out they came across this muffler that has no numbers marked on it. The muffler is narrower than a 1500/1600 mufller, the castings for the heat risers are big bulky and solid sorta like a 25hp muffler. Instead of it having a bell shape where the front exhaust goes into the muffler it's just a straight pipe with 2 (or 4 can't remember) notches cut into it. the general shape of it looks like what i'm used to seeing for a 1500/1600 muffler. it has a vw logo stamped right in the middle of it too. It only has one tip on it, that comes out a bit then angles at about 30-40 degrees down then straightens back out (all in a total of about 8" or so). Now here's the kicker the exhaust tip is on the drivers side not the passenger side. every pic i've looked at of 36 horse motors, and barndoor busses points to this muffler except for the fact that it exits on the left not the right.

i hope this describes it well enough.

i'd like to say it's a repop of an early early bus muffler, but it has the vw stamp on it, which leads me to believe it's not a repop. any insight would help, i hope this discription is good, any questions feel free to ask.

thanks

here's some pics

Hey....that last pic of the industrial engine in the single cab .....that MY stuff!!...or was. They both now live at Wolfsburg West. 40hp industrial engine powering a 120/240volt Generator.(heavier than S--T! it took 8 guys to "barely" lift it into the truck..) and my low mile unrestored/original 57 single cab. The gene came from a chrome plating factory in England. The Factory did chroming for Lucas Electric. The Gene was "the" backup power for the entire factory!

As far as your muffler goes....stale air 40hp and "industrial" is a safe bet for sure! 40hp engines were used from inception of 40hp in 1961 all the way into the 1980's and later for industrial purposes...so VW offered many versions of 40hp industrial mufflers as time went by and suppliers changed. One thing to always remember, VW did not and does not make all their own parts... Loads of out sourcing, Bosch, Hella, Hassia, Huff, Lemerz, are a few..
Aloha!
