The "Converter" is a separate part of the muffler, held in by the screw at the inlet end. the screw vibrated out of mine and when I took it apart to see what was going "clunk" inside as I moved it that's what fell out.
Doesn't look like very much catalytic action was going on, it was oily. I left it out. Suppose I could get a nickle for all the precious metals in it?
