I decided to try and make a silencer for the suffolk 75G14 mower engine out of nothing more than bits and pieces I could find in the house and the shed. So, it simply consists of a soup tin,…

    wow did anyone try this?

    I need something for my 49cc pocket bike. Just so I don’t need to wear
    hearing protection. Also I need to sneak by the pp station here or should i
    say the oinker farm on the backstreets, I dont want to ride on the main
    road and the problem is there is a freeway and only 2 bridge crossings.

    Well, I did that with a 6HP Briggs and Stratton engine. It didn’t work, you
    probably used that on like a 2 or 1 HP engine. That muffler only works up
    to a point.

    Someones a handyman inventionist. Thats actually pretty cool. Question if I
    were to do something like this with our lawn mower and say I wanted to mow
    some peoples lawns and I could at times during the day but say I couldn’t
    but still wanted to do some at night. Would that not make the lawn mower as
    loud at night? Would it say just sound like someone’s air conditioner or
    pool cleaner going off? Doesn’t sound that loud or that racket;

    worked like a charm!

    Thats true, prehaps I should do that on the Wolseley, would make it very
    quiet indeed.

    Thank you. There are a lot of people out there with nothing better to do
    other than bitch and moan, so it’s allways nice to receive a good comment.
    There was no power loss, an engine like this has such low power and
    compression anyway that you can almost completley block the exhaust port
    and they will still run.

    Hi there, The hose was just a push fit into the engines original silencer
    and the pipe soldered to the tin can. It was only intended to be used with
    the engine near or at tick over so it didn’t need to be secured.

    Hey dude! Could I do this on my 80cc petrol bicycle motor???????

  14. flooflox says:

    Dramatic difference. Well done.

  15. steamwally says:

    It sure is effective!

  18. bryce995 says:

    @steamwally cool beans can i use this for my riding lawn mower and when you
    say sodder do you mean like wire sodder or pipe sodder!

  19. steamwally says:

    540 videos and a very successful youtube channel. I’ve met many interesting
    people through youtube and the engine shows. I think I know who needs to
    get a life with the time to post a comment like that.

    no it wont cause by the time the can “fills up” it will already go out the
    holes not giving enough time for the presure to build up

    How does the tube not melt????

  22. David Gardner says:

    @steamwally And great work on the silencer also. As an artist and tinkerer
    fixer upper, I really appreciate folks like you to give me ideas on how to
    deal with issues like that. I have an Atlas Powered Paraglider with a Fresh
    Breeze Motor unit and I fly as often as I can. I have worked on the motor
    several times for one reason or another, and this silencer gives me ideas.
    Thanks again!

    great job there. I think I should make an exhaust pipe for my front engined
    drift trike because all the smoke is going in my face. It needs to be
    flexible for when I steer, would you recomend a hose pipe or doesn’t it
    cope too well with heat? thanks

    Well over here we call ’em silencers……
