  • Baffles, more...

    rsgrob Excellent info thanks mate. Explains it well. (One of the nice things that I like about SS is that you can Silver Solder it).
    I'm interested in how the rear fixed baffle aligns with the front removable baffle. Because the front muffler inlet hole doesn't align with the rear outlet. Looking at the late type and also an earlier pre-war 'fatter' type, there's an offset, I'll post a pic to clarify. Click image for larger version

      the fixed baffle aligns with the bottom of the silencer and the entry point of the pipe.The top hat section at the rear of the fixed baffle does two things.
      first a location for the far end of the removable baffle and secondly a fixed wall against which exhaust gases are reflected back through the louvres on the removable baffle. The top hat section on my original silencer did not have a hole in it but I see a lot of the supposedly correct new production does??

  • Baffle + measurements & Baffle types
    by joolstacho
    The previous drawing didn't include measurements, this one does. Hopefully it'll work ok. It's a pdf file so I presume you'll need Acrobat on your computer to 'read' it.
    Also, if anyone knows the differences between the earlier and later Fishtail baffles I'd like to know, particularly about the rear fixed (welded in) baffle. Is it the same in both types or not?

  • PDF upload test - Baffle pattern
    by joolstacho
    This is a pdf of a drawing I made for the final fixed baffle in a Fishtail. To enable / aid fabrication.
    I have added a second version which is more useful because it has measurements see: FixedBaffle#2.pdf...
