    Welcome to the forum Pease, I see you've been doing your homework (^)

    Using that lever for a throttle is a good idea, all you really need to make sure is you have a good return spring....it will work just fine.

    hey Pease, can't wait to see the pics!

    The Briggs muffler many of us 4-stroke guys use is the 4-8 or the 5-7 horse muffler.
    Home Depot and Ace have it for under $10. Looks like this: Arnold M-110 Muffler 4-8Hp Bs294599.

    Sorry I can't help with the flexpipe, I sourced mine from another member who had a roll of it.
