This is a hard to get muffler,if you find it,its big bucks.
Stephen Birtles looked into getting them once.
Maybe he will comment.

My previous 83pt. had a 8kw power tech the PO had installed it himself and also straight piped it. ( no muffler) . I picked up a muffler and pipe ( was about. 5 ft in length total and the flex pipe that brought it off the engine ( flex pipe was approx 2ft) . The whole unit was purchased at Power Tech just south of Ocala, FL. for around. $100 - $125. about 2 years ago.

Dana, when we purchased our coach 10 years ago, the gen would run for a period of time then shut down. Not on hi temp or low oil pres. I was going nuts trying to figure it out. I took it to a gen shop and 2 young guys were diagnosing it and said it appeared to be a bad injector pump. They went back inside the building to get a price. There happened to be an old man standing by the door way and come over to me and told me exactly what the problem was. He told me to slide the gen out and run it. (no muffler that way). It ran and ran and ran. Slid the tray back in and in 10 minutes it shut down. Open the tray it ran and ran. Close the tray, 10 minutes it shut down. the old guy told me I simply had a clogged muffler. I went home, cut the muffler off and opened it up. Sure enough it was clogged. Turns out the PO had put a regular gas engine muffler on it. there apparently is a BIG difference between and gas and diesel muffler. I went to the local muffler shop, told them the size DIESEL muffler I needed. Been on there for 10 years now and no problems. Moral of the story....Make SURE you get a DIESEL muffler and NOT one for a gas engine.

another moral : sometimes one old man looking for simple things first can out-think two young men over-look'n the basics

Amen to that Mike!! Had that old guy not been standing there, I may very well have spent what....a grand or more on an injector pump. So it cost me less than a hundred bucks for a muffler some pipe and a chrome tip. Been running great ever since.

I would never have guessed that a gas engine muffler would be so different than a diesel muffler. Although I never took notice of the difference because the old muffler was so packed with soot. I assume the louvers and such inside are bigger on the diesel muffler to allow for the dirtier exhaust.

Try United Muffler.
He quoted me $235.95 + shipping in August 2011. He's in Canada so you might have to pay a fee. I ended up building a SS myself, but he is the only one I found. I have a pdf drawing if you need it
