Can you tell what kind of mufflers

Post by Zombie Master » Wed Nov 22, 2017 1:57 am

These are stainless mufflers. I was wondering if anybody can tell what brand they are?

The lack of the external weld at the angle at the tip has them looking like Overlander mufflers, made here in Warrnambool, Oz.
Somehow I doubt it? What makes in NA make them like that?

I thought Overland as well. Perhaps they were exported.

Not Epco or Emgo (can't remember the name) whatever mine are, made in the USA.

Keep 'em coming, I think there will be a process of elimination. These pipes came off my R90 so they must be from late 70's early 80's.

I thought Overland as well, so I looked at mine and there is a tube that extends to near the end, unwelded.
Not saying all Overland are like my 30? yo ones.

Quite by chance I took my mufflers to Barry Bligh at Overlander for a minor repair on mounting lug and a polish.
Barry proudly told me there would be no charge involved as he had made the mufflers 35 years ago and he was happy to do a warranty job!!
