Restoration Quality Exhaust Mufflers For Farmalls
Mufflers are available for Farmall models made from 1939 to 1963 and are available in 2 different styles: aluminized steel and polished stainless steel.
“You can’t buy mufflers like these anywhere else, and they’re affordably priced,” says Dan Steiner. “They have the same dimensions as the original mufflers. Not only do these mufflers look the same, they’re baffled just like the originals so they also sound the same. The IH logo and part number is stamped into the side of the muffler.”
According to Steiner, the original Farmall tractor used a muffler made by the MacKenzie company in Youngstown, Ohio. “They made a muffler with a tall ‘hat’ on top of the body. At some point in time, IH switched to mufflers made by the Donaldson company. Those mufflers had the same IH part numbers, but they had a flat hat that greatly altered the look.
“We make our mufflers using the original MacKenzie blueprint. We use a high temperature paint on both muffler styles so the paint won’t bubble or become discolored over time.”
IH never offered a stainless steel muffler, but Steiner says they decided to make one just for its looks. “We tell people it gives you an excuse to wear sunglasses when you’re driving the tractor,” he notes.
Prices range from $46.95 to $69.95 plus S&H for an aluminized steel muffler and $108.50 to $124.95 plus S&H for a stainless steel muffler.
“We also plan to offer a comprehensive line of original style mufflers for other tractor brands and models,” notes Steiner.
