Hey Ruthi,

Get the dimensions and Inlet/Outlet placement and size.

Then search Walker mufflers.  http://www.walkerheavyduty.com/products/MediumHD.asp

They will have an exact fit or something you can make work.

My muffler replacement went from 1200.00 exact fit to 300.00 adapted.

I went to my local Peterbilt store.  Fun place to shop and they can get anything if you know what the specs are.

I'm presently having one made for $450. plus shipping.  I went to my local truck parts house and they had to measure it several times.  I'll let you know how it comes out.  I hope to get in a couple of weeks.

Ruthi do you have any plans to work in Eastern NC.  I heard there is a new Walmart being built in Greenville, NC.  I would like to meet you'll.

Rusty, I will tell Ken to call you, and my knitting skills are not to good, since I only have one good arm to do it with now, lol.  Art, if there is a Walmart being built, we most likely will be there. Dont know when yet. We only know a month or two in advance where we will be. I will let you know. Cliff, thanks again.

If you still have the original muffler it is part 39420224-7 from MCI.  Hang on to your wallet as they charge $1037 for it.  I would sure be looking at generic mufflers before shelling out that kind of money for a muffler.

Buy you a Areo muffler with a built in resonator it will let your 60 series breath and he will love the sound cost around  200 bucks for a S/S muffler that will last with fitting you should come in under 400 bucks

Ruth,
 I think that muffler Clifford is referring to is on eBAY for $119 dollars, of course some other parts will be needed to plumb it in.

 http://www.ebay.com/itm/Aero-Turbine-Performance-Exhaust-AT5050XL-Muffler-/310373402849?pt=Motors_Car_Truck_Parts_Accessories&hash=item4843b248e1&vxp=mtr 

Wonder what it would sound like out of that stack???

That Aero is the muffler we use on our bus.

At a trade show several years ago the booth next to ours was an Aero dealer.  My mouth watered the whole show.  I finally talked him into a "vendor discount" and I think I paid more than the ebay price.

I can't remember what I had before that muffler, but I don't recall that it made any difference in power. 

The Aero is a bit loud.  Sounds good, but when I am on the Jakes, it really cackles.  When I get close to a town, I try to remember to turn the Jakes off.
