    Muffler Rattle Fix?

    The Spark Arrestor / Muffler Cap has become loose and rattles around idle. I've removed it a few time tightened it up with lock tight but it still rattles.

    Has anyone experienced this and have suggestions for a fix?

    Cheers!

    I can't even get mine off. Drilled out the old screw and everything. No budge. Don't feel like anything is wrong, but just wanted to check it cause they say you should!

    I like smalls idea for your issue.

    There are some propeller looking fins that fit deep in the muffler on the piece you can remove. Bend them apart a little bit so they fit tightly and your problems will be solved for a little while. They will probably loosen up with time and use.

    Admiral -- I couldn't get mine out either but was bound and determined to do so and I ended up wrecking it, the part one removes to inspect. As it turned out everything was OK and I wrecked for nothing. Tony
