Re: Another new guy
It's been awhile since I did a China girl build, but the last one I had the muffler was supposedly "catalytic"... it would get so hot that it was glowing red at night. Talk about restriction! In making a muffler for an antique (1934) Sachs 98cc 2 stroke, I used the China girl muffler, gutted it with the exception of a baffle and put stainless steel wool inside. Haven't run that engine much since the build is still in process, but it sounded good, not too loud and I'm sure it was able to breathe.
Someday when I grow up I will probably lose interest in toys with wheels, but until then...
