    Muffler for Lincoln Ranger 8

    I'm looking for a replacement muffler for a Ranger 8 with an Onan Performer 16 engine. Anyone have any ideas? I can't seem to find one on the internet! I feel like I've searched to the end of it too!

    well, they aren't really mufflers if you ask me. They are just cans with an outlet on either side.

    I welded one side shut. Got myself a Honda muffler, used a U shaped piece and the muffler sits pretty much above the engine. Works great. I really wanted a straight up exhaust like an old farm tractor but it was too tall and looked stupid.

    I ended up going with a tractor style muffler on mine, here's the link to that discussion, a few pictures included. http://weldingweb.com/showthread.php?t=102821

    I just priced a replacement muffler for a bobcat 225 that belongs to an employee. It was $185 from miller for the 16 hp onan motor. WTF????

    Lincoln Electric quoted me a price thru Roberts Oxygen for $199. The small engine shop near me wanted $269. Uh no thanks.

    Yeah, but it would be a V- twin with drag pipes.

    I used an onan RV muffler on my Lincoln. Bought it on e-bay, 11/4" inlet, 11/4" out. IIRC cost including shipping was way under $100.

    How bad is your original muffler, mine was OK but the pipes had rotted out. So I used some water pipe to replace them. I had a problem in that I could not thread them into the engine ports so I just put pipe unions on both sides. A little larger that normal but not to bad and they have worked fine for many hours now. If you muffler is totally shot, you could pick up a tractor muffler from NAPA or Tractor Supply and build something similar. They generally input from the outer shell and exhaust through the inner core, so it you plugged the end inlet and hole sawed 2 holes and welded in the water pipe you could make 1 pretty easily. Heres a couple pictures of mine.

    Here's a link to the one that I used on the briggs.

    You could also use one for a garden tractor, try John Deere, Case, Wheel horse. They almost all had models that used the onan engine.
