This post isn’t terribly interesting – it’s a place to put photos of the damage to my Husqvarna TC449’s muffler. I’m posting this for the benefit of Bret at piperepair.com so he can tell me if this damage is repairable.
Here’s an overall view of the muffler:
Here are two views of the two major creases in the pipe, right at the point where the muffler mounts to the frame:
Here’s a view of the bent mounting bracket. The mounting surface should be flat, and the bracket should have two clean angles in it. Instead, it is now curved.
So what do you think, Bret? Can you fix it? Should I box it up?
